  2. Dear sir,

    You are really a talented versatile actor, after NADIGAR THILAGAM. (I am very big fan of Ganesan Sir). There is no doubt in that. But, some of your policies are not acceptable to me. A person born in a Country like India (where enormous Saints arised & lived) & more particularly as a Hindu, one should believe the existance of God (the Supreme power). As a Brahmin, I am a very very strong believer of God & I am really proud to be a GOD FEARING person. Kindly try to change your attitude atleast in the coming days.

  3. You are special gift from God this is the only things that i understood ,since i started to watch your movies you having all the characters’ mean you’ve support from God to express such a kind of talent it’s not so easy without his mercy so trust him there is God who operating the entire earth.but i love your mind………you having God thoughts all the time

  13. Dr.Kamal hasson hope ur well with ur family.I am just 5 moths younger than u still i want to send a peice of advice/suggesstions.You are the best Actor the country has now and your contribution to the film industry and the soceity is second to none.But always beware of politicians.There are some politicians trying to catch your popularity and use for thier benefit not only that and the same time earn rivalry for you and have the saddistic pleasure.Can you forget the events happened to a fine and popular comedian vadivelu in recent tome?The people who wanted to cash his popularity for their benefits are not ready to cast in films produced from thier own banners are you aware of this.?Out of affection to tamil out of thier tamil talents or out of respect to their age if you fall as a pray on thier villianous attempts we can only see what has happened to ” VISWAROOPAM” Hope you understand.You are a national treasure and you have seen the nation,s response towards you… though all is well.. but the agony you and your family and your fans faced are because of the function you fall as a pray and spoken about who to become the Prime minister of India.I donot want to go further and you may that was your freedom of speech but the time and vevue and the situation shown us the results.We want you to be the Kamal Hasson always the Universal Star.If anything i said is unwanted kindly ignore and take care…Dr.R.A.Nambi
