Kamal Haasan on Robin Williams’ Death

Kamal Haasan condoled the death of Robin Williams, whose Mrs Doubtfire served as an inspiration for the actor’s Avvai Shanmugi. In an official statement, the actor revealed that he was extremely distressed at the news of the comedy great’s passing.

If the alleged story about his suicide is true, then I dislike him for ending his life before his due date of expiry. That’s a cop-out that I don’t expect of an artist of his caliber.

Kamal Haasan, in his statement, hailed Robin Williams for bringing dignity to ‘male crying’  and said that he ‘liked him for his talent’. Various news reports have alleged that Robin Williams committed suicide after a long battle with depression. Local authorities found the actor unconscious at his home in California on Monday afternoon. He was pronounced dead shortly after.
