Actor Kamal Haasan found himself in the middle of a controversy recently when he tweeted his condolence message for the departed CM of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa.
சார்ந்தோர் அனைவருக்கும் ஆழ்ந்த அனுதாபங்கள்.— Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) December 6, 2016
(Then is this a lie?)
Clearly, many have not forgotten the furore around "Vishwaroopam" and the supposed fall-out that Kamal had with Jayalalithaa.

Some didn't think Kamal had been insulting.
Kamal is yet to respond to this storm in a teacup.
