Kamal Haasan who turned politician and launched a party recently said that he doesn’t believe in caste and religion. He also said that he brought up his daughters without mentioning caste ever. “I refused to fill in the caste & religion column in both my daughters’ school admission certificate,” he tweeted.
What Kamal forgot is that in this age of social media, all past mistakes or deeds would easily surface. Soon after Kamal boasted that his daughters don’t believe in caste, trollers began posting Shruti Haasan’s old video interview.
In 2014, Shruti told this to the journalist who is an Iyengar: “It is because you’re Iyengar and I am Iyengar and we are both creative. And there’s a very high chance that nobody will marry either of us.”
Shruti happily boasts of her Iyengar credentials. On the other hand, Kamal says he brought up his daughters far from the caste shadow. So, trollers began attacking him for his hollow ideologies.
