The icon of Tamil cinema industry, Kamal will be turning 60 in 4 more days. In a recent interview to a popular daily, Kamal opened up on many things related to his on & off screen avatars.
In a question to what else he writes apart from scripting his own movies, Kamal says, “I write the occasional poem. I think my dabbling in poetry makes me better at screenplays. Poetry teaches the value of condensing, the importance of talking in a few words. So, yes, I do write poetry, even though I’m asked not to publish them. “
Kamal adds that he had penned a poem ten years ago about the onset of gay marriages and did not publish it thinking that it would be too controversial. Well, this proves that ‘Ulaganayagan’ is always a step above from rest of the world and so does his movies are!
