‘I Was A Bitter Critic Of Mahatma Gandhi, Today I’m A Fan’: Kamal Hasaan Informs Rahul Gandhi He Made ‘Hey Ram’ To Say Sorry To Bapu. Watch The Video Inside!

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi uploaded a video on his YouTube where he is seen in a conversation with Kamal.

Released in 2000 and directed by Kamal Haasan, Hey Ram stars Rani Mukerji, Naseeruddin Shah, Hema Malini and others. It was made in Tamil and Hindi languages and showcased superstar Shah Rukh Khan in a supporting role. The film was sent to the Oscars but wasn’t nominated.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi uploaded a video on his YouTube where he is seen in a conversation with Kamal. Kamal stated that he made a dramatic movie called “Hey Ram” to say sorry to Bapu, to whom he earlier critiqued.

“I talk a lot about Gandhi ji now, but it wasn’t right from the beginning. My father was a Congressman but my environment made me a bitter critic of Gandhi ji when I was in my teens. My father said, ‘Just read history, you are talking from today.’ But today matters, is what (I had said). He is a lawyer, but he didn’t argue with me on this,” the actor stated.

 

He added, “Around when I was 24-25, I discovered Gandhi ji on my own and over the years I have exponentially become a fan. To actually correct yourself and say sorry, that’s why I made Hey Ram, where I played a parallel assassin, wanting to kill Gandhi ji. As he goes nearer to the person–and the truth–he changes. But it’s too late, somebody else does the job that he wanted to but changed his mind. That’s the story of the film.”

“It was my way of saying sorry to my Bapu. I have to take the onus of the crimes, including what happened in your family. We let it happen,” said the actor when Rahul asked him about the idea of the film. The film won three honours, namely best supporting actor for Atul Kulkarni, costume design for Sarika and Manthra for special effects, at the 47th National Film Awards.
