Kamal Hassan, who started his film career as a child actor in Tamil film Kalathur Kannamma, received his first regional Filmfare Award for his role in a Malayalam film titled Kanyakumari in 1974.
Earlier, AMMA faced criticism for boycotting a state government"s function for felicitating the universal star Kamal Hassan. He had a humble start in Mollywood but later earned stardom with his various powerful performances.
Now, AMMA"s treasurer Jagadeesh has come out to clear the air. He said that they did not attend the event only because it was meant to be aired on a private channel. He said that they had no intention of showing any kind of disrespect to the actor.
Jagadheesh has announced that AMMA is now planning to organize a separate grand function to felicitate Kamal Hassan, and it will be done within six months.
Well, whatever be the truth, one thing is sure that the reputation of Kamal Hassan is not dependant on any award by any organization. Recently, the star returned to Mollywood after a long time.
