A controversial scene between Kamal Haasan and Rekha from the 1986 movie Punnagai Mannan was the talk of the town back then. It grabbed a lot of attention due to Kamal Haasan's unplanned kiss with Rekha before they jumped off a cliff in the movie. While it is an iconic scene, a video of Rekha talking about how Kamal Haasan had kissed her without her permission, had hit the headlines earlier this year. During an interview, Rekha, who is now surprisingly a part of Kamal Haasan hosted Bigg Boss Tamil 4 had stated that she was not aware of the kiss. The actress had revealed that she would have not agreed to the scene, had she been informed earlier.

Earlier this year when the video of the kiss started doing rounds yet again, Times Of India had quoted her saying, "I don’t have anything to say on it. I don’t know why this is becoming so popular on social media now. That was something which happened years ago. They took the scene without my approval, but it worked for the film. I don’t wish to talk about it now to gain popularity out of it. I am busy with acting assignments in movies and web series. I have lot of other responsibilities, too."

Punnagai Mannan was released on November 1, 1986, and also featured actor Revathi in a lead role.

It happened with Rekha too. So its very common for newcomers to face such incidents but I guess they know what they are getting into once they chose a filmy career. It's no cakewalk here unless you are a starkid. Kamal Hassan's karma has affected his kids. They could never make it big inspite of having it all. That's life I guess. I pity shruti n akshara.

As the actress it did good for the movie. And if she had disagreed with the kiss she could have got it cut from the movie. So in finality she did agree after all. Most of these people making comments calling Kamal a perv would not have been born in 86

This comes from patriarchal mindset. As men we can do anything on women and know they will

Women are too cunning now a days. Laws are made with helpless women in mind. College educated ladies paralysing most college educated men with fear.
