Five days after Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan congratulated actor Kamal Haasan on being chosen for the Chevalier Award, the actor has sent the CM the following message:

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for your kind words on my Chevalier award. Someone remarked, "How nice of another state's head to lavish you with praise. I interjected, "He is not another state’s CM. He is my state's CM. Ask any film-going Malayalee which state I belong to."


Kamal Haasan

In a letter sent to the actor, the Kerala CM had said, “You have been chosen for the prestigious Chevalier Award for placing the Indian cinema on the top of world films through your multi-faceted personality.”

The CM also added that Kamal’s humility was apparent in his act of dedicating the award to his fans and well-wishers.

Kamal’s first independent film as lead actor was “Kanyakumari”, a Malayalam film which won him his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor. He appeared in many more Malayalam films through the seventies and eighties.

Kamal Haasan, who is recovering from an injury, has tweeted that he has started the paperwork again for his upcoming trilingual film “Sabaash Naidu”.

He has also promised to reveal to his fans the “near miss” that he had with the accident.
