The news of Kamal Haasan and Gautami's split has come as a shocker for the fans of the two stars. The duo was in a live-in relationship for. Kamal Haasan and Gautami parted ways in for holding Kamal entirely responsible for pushing her to end the relationship with him.
I have often wondered if things would have been different for Gautami if it was not Kamal Haasan in question. Of course, the moral brigade did try their bit.
Why Gautami's dignified announcement about her break up with Kamal didn't surprise me
But the police would have none of it. And this I say with an innate sense of shame because I wish the likes of Khushbu and Gautami too enjoyed such a status.Actress Gowthami reveals why she decided to break-up the relationship with Kamal Hassan
But then, Gautami was also a personality of her own, a strong one at that. The strength came through shining gloriously when she was recuperating from breast cancer and fearlessly spoke of it, encouraging women to prioritise their health.
Among celebrities who always hid their personal side - from health to relationships — Gautami was a class apart.
When I met her for an interview in mid s, she came across as a disarmingly honest person. I confronted her on the male domination in Tamil cinema and she confessed that she had not been old enough to choose roles that had more meaning in her heydays.
She seemed worried about the trend of heavily hero-centric films and thought women should direct films more for that to change. Inhe visited Srividya in the hospital before she passed away, which inspired Malayalam director Renjith to make the film, Thirakkatha.

She has a daughter from her ex-husband. It is heartbreaking for me to have to say today that I and Mr. Haasan are no longer together. After almost 13 years together, it has been one of the most devastating decisions that I have ever had to make in my life.
It is never easy for anyone in a committed relationship to realise that their paths have irreversibly diverged and that the only choices in front of them are to either compromise with their dreams for life or to accept the truth of their solitude and move ahead.
It has taken me a very long time, a couple of years at the very least, to accept this heartbreaking truth and come to this decision.

It is not my intention to seek sympathy or assign blame. I have understood through my life that change is inevitable and human nature will define that change for each individual.
Not all of these changes might be what we expect or anticipate but that does not, in any way, negate the very real impact of these diverging priorities in a relationship. This decision to set forth on my own at this stage in my life is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions any woman will ever have to make but it is a necessary one for me.
