  17. Dear Mr Kamal:
    you have many many adorable human qualities besides your acting skills. I wish you every success in your forthcoming projects. being close to your age may suggest onething? please dedicate all your time for the film industry by all means; but do not invest every penny in it. think about your future and reserve a few pennies for the “rainy Day” This is not being too personal but bit of excess as a well wisher!

  19. Dear Sir,

    Although I hold 3 professional degrees in accounting (including CPA from U.S.)i still feel proud of one area in my CV i.e, i studied in the same school as yours (Mctm). My class teacher (same for you)used to feel for having scolded u and he used to express it to us. I am working outside India for the past 20 years as an expatriate and would love to provide you the necessary inputs as well and play a small role (if you can allow). I would be more grateful if you can send me mail to startwith. I have never missed your movies and no one can….. Bye sir. Anxiously awaiting your response..

  20. Dear Sir,

    The above message is from me only to take a moview on expatriate’s life- what he gains (artificial ones) and what he looses (real ones). I am sure the movie will be super/duper hit as nobody has attempted it yet even…..

  21. helo kamal sir,manmadan anbu,unarvugalukku mathipalithu edutha padam,nandri manmadan anbu team.

  24. Hi Kamal ,U r a LEGEND for this DECADE! No One is Equal for u in Tamil Industry. But my simple suggestion is, ur Films must be reached all levels of people. Some films of yours are not able to understand by all people.
    ALL THE BEST!

  28. Hello sir,

    There are plenty of things to be shared. I know not all of them is possible.

    But, apart from your method acting, there is a lot of other acting styles that you try. Don’t know what their names are, but as a layman, I really don’t want to know about those styles and not very happy that our actors trimming their performance on the screen, just to be in line with some acting theories that are written by non-actors.

    Open ended, down to earth acting (without any traces of a stage performer) without any boundaries, is what people are looking for. In other words, a little bit of grammar need to be omitted, as we even cannot talk in a grammatically correct mother tongue.

    I hope I have conveyed my point reasonably.

    BHARATHIYAN
