‘My leg which suffered a multi-fracture in August suffered a neural trauma on Monday. The pain is unbearable. I am on sedation most of the time now. So there is hardly room for celebration,’ Kamal Haasan said in a groggy voice.
Every year he brings in his birthday with two very close friends from outside the film industry who share their birth date with him. ‘But this time I had to say no to their invitation. There’s too much pain. I am sedated from physical pain. But the other pain is not something I want to go out in public with,’ he said.
The exit of Mr Haasan’s partner Gautami Tadimalla has left him shaken, but he has maintained an outward calm. ‘I am not about to have public breakdowns. Pain is nothing new to me. I’ve dealt with it all my life. But yes, it gets awkward on a birthday when friends and fans want to meet you,’ he said. Days ago, Gautami announced in a blog post that she was no longer with the actor.
