On the occasion of his passing, Kamal Haasan pays tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and writes, “I am one among those who try to be Gandhi.”

On the 75th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s passing, actor Kamal Haasan paid respect to him. Kamal sent a message on Twitter claiming that he attempts to emulate Mahatma Gandhi. The actor claimed to have kneeled before the nation’s founding father. On January 30, 1948, Nathuram Godse killed Mahatma Gandhi.

Kamal Haasan paid a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his death anniversary.

Kamal posted in Tamil on Twitter, “I have never gone a day without thinking of or saying the name of Gandhi. Even today, there are still many Gandhians who serve as living examples of how anyone might strive to become a Gandhi. One of those Gandhi-impersonators is myself. On this Memorial Day, I bow.”

This wasn’t Kamal’s first time mentioning Mahatma Gandhi. Speaking with Congressman Rahul Gandhi earlier this month, Kamal discussed his 2000 film Hey Ram, which was based on the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. Both Tamil and Hindi versions of the movie were released. Kamal talked openly about how he decided to take on the assignment and what happened off camera.

Taking to Twitter, Kamal penned a note.

Kamal had declared, “It was my means of apologising to my Bapu. Though it wasn’t always this way, I now talk a lot about Gandhi ji. Although my father was a “Congress member,” my upbringing turned me into a fervent opponent of Gandhi ji by the time I was in my teens. Just read history, my father said me, because you are speaking from today. But what matters right now is… Although he is a lawyer, he did not dispute my position, “Added he.

He further stated, “I first learned about Gandhi ji when I was between 24 and 25 years old, and throughout the years, my admiration for him has grown significantly. Hey Ram, in which I played a parallel assassin who wanted to assassinate Gandhi ji, was created as a way for me to genuinely right myself and apologise. He evolves as he gets closer to the subject—and the truth. But it’s too late; someone else now completes the task he originally intended to complete but changed his mind about. That is the movie’s plot.”

Gandhi Godse: Ek Yudh, another movie about Mahatma Gandhi that was recently released in theatres, was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. The movie highlights the conflict between Gandhi’s and Nathuram Godse’s two conflicting beliefs. Deepak Antani plays Gandhi in the movie (essayed by Chinmay Mandlekar). Santoshi Productions LLP and PVR Pictures are supporting the movie.
