Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi turned 150 last month and Kamal Haasan celebrated his 64th birthday on November 7th. Well, it was double celebrations for the Tamil star as he hosted a special screening of his 2000 film, Hey Ram. The film, which is written and directed by Kamal Haasan has won three National Awards and is one of the much-talked-about films. After the screening of the film in Chennai, Haasan went down memory lane as he talked about the film and how finding Gandhi was a “personal journey” for him.

Post the screening of the film, Kamal Haasan made some revelations about his 2000 film, Hey Ram. During an interactive session with Kamal Haasan and Tushar Gandhi, the great-grandson of MK Gandhi, Haasan said, “I come from a family of Gandhi bhakts. But I am nobody’s bhakt. I had a controversial opinion on Gandhi when I was a teenager. This film is my apology to him. I never call him Mahatma because I wanted to see his face behind such a big halo.”

During the same conversation, Kamal Haasan was asked if he had any plans to get into politics when he made Hey Ram, to this he replied, "In 2000, I didn't have any idea about coming to politics. But, if you watch the film, you could see I wanted to. Politics isn't a game where a person is clever. It is about doing something inimitable by lesser people. It's about being honest."
