Kamal Hasan brings me a trophy and takes me back in time

Kamal Hassan pleasantly surprised me and Saira by calling us one morning to ask if he could come over from Chennai to present an award, given by FICCI to me on occasion of the centenary celebrations of Indian Cinema in Chennai. Naturally, we told him he was most welcome and he was here on the dot on October 15 evening to present the award and spend a wonderful evening with us.

We travelled back in time to the day when I was in Chennai ( then Madras ) as an invitee at the silver jubilee celebrations of his starrer Ek Duje Ke Liye and later again as an invitee at the silver jubilee of Thevar Magan. He was ever so warm and humble when we complimented him on the film's success and his sterling performance which contributed to the success of the films.

We, Saira and I , had fallen in love with Chennai  when we stayed for long spells in a bungalow I had acquired during the making of Ram aur Shyam. We were newly married and the film's producer Shri Nagi Reddy made sure that we lacked nothing in the bungalow for our comfort. The unpretentious Southern hospitality and tradition of treating every one with respect overwhelmed us so much that we almost decided to shift base to Chennai.

I noticed, all through the evening we were together, that Kamal has retained his humility and gentlemanly bearing despite the abundant success he has enjoyed and the strides he has taken as a versatile actor and an inspiration to upcoming actors. I guess that sense of balance and native wisdom are some things that we who make it to stardom the hard way through self evolution assimilate from the hard knocks we get from experiences along the way.

It was a lovely evening and I must thank FICCI for the thoughtful gesture and Kamal for taking the trouble of coming all the way to present the trophy at my residence.

  5. I am a Pakistani brought-up in Karachi, but now living in Australia, I remember those days of my childhood in late 80s and early 90s, when my father used to tell us that if you performed well in your exams I will bring VCR and DK' films as a reward, we used work so hard in our exams to watch your films, those days we don't have Indian movies releasing on big screens. My father used to work and live in Calcutta before partition and fond of watching your movies but later he moved to Karachi. I still remember you visited Karachi, and came to a bank where my father used to work, that time he was so excited meeting you. I wish you a good health and keep writing.

  13. Your FICCI award is just a very tiny appreciation of your magnificent contribution to Indian cinema industry.Speaking of Ram and Shyam you had entered the minds of 2 different personalities and psyche with your sharp acumen and given a classic performance which has yet to be equalled by any other star.
    Permit me to declare here that after your exit from movies a sharp boundary has been formed in Indian cinema.An era of acting during your times and era of acting after your exit. There can be no comparison whatsoever of the two periods.
    May God bless you and Sairaji.

    The text describes a fictional scenario where Kamal Hasan brings a person back in time with a trophy, allowing them to witness history firsthand. The experience is described as mind-blowing, with the trophy serving as a symbol of the extraordinary journey. The author is grateful for the opportunity to witness history unfold before their eyes and expresses gratitude for the time-traveling skills of Hasan. The author also describes the time-traveling adventure as stepping into a time machine, with the trophy serving as a symbol of the extraordinary experience. The author describes the experience as surreal and magical, with the author describing it as a memory for a lifetime. However, the comments are purely imaginative and fictional, as time travel is currently a concept only found in science fiction. Kamal Hasan, a renowned actor and filmmaker, is not associated with time travel in any way.
