Chennai: Vteran film star Kamal Haasan today paid a visit to the house of former President, the late APJ Abdul Kalam here, before he launches his party later today.
Haasan visited House of Kalam in Rameswaram in this district and was received warmly by the ex-presidentâ€™s family members.
Meanwhile, the actor-director said, â€œGreatness can come from simple beginnings,â€ about his visit to Kalamâ€™s residence.
â€œGreatness can come from simple beginnings. Actually it will come only from simplicity. Glad to start my journey from a great manâ€™s simple abode,â€ he said in a tweet.
Haasan briefly interacted with Kalamâ€™s nonagenarian brother Mohammed Muthumeeran Lebbai Maraikkayar. Kalamâ€™s family presented a memento carrying an image of the former president to Haasan.
Later, interacting with members of the fishermen community, Haasan said he had learnt about their problems through media reports but wanted to hear it from themselves.
â€œHenceforth, it will happen so,â€ he said hinting at more such interactions.
