I also had thoughts of suicide but... Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasans shocking speech

Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan has shocked fans by stating that he too had thoughts of suicide at an young age. He was speaking at a college event when he spoke about it but at the same time inspired the gathering by stating how he overcame such negative thoughts and went on to achieve great things as one of the best actors ever in Indian cinema.

Kamal Haasan was the special guest at a program held at Loyola College, Chennai. In an interaction with students he was asked "What is your opinion on youth suicide? Without hesitation the legendary actor replied "I was also thinking about suicide at the age of 20 or 21. During that period I considered myself to be a great artiste and was longing for opportunities that I didn't really get. I believed for sometime that if I die then the world will cry for me and realize what a gem they missed."

The 68 year old thespian added "But then realization dawned on me and I started seeing that Darkness is not always in our life, dawn will surely come one day. if you work hard till that dawn, you can succeed in life. And although death is a chapter of life, don't go looking for it, let it come when it comes. And after that I firmly believed that suicide is not the solutionat all but go dream about the ambition every day before going to sleep, even if the ambition is not fulfilled, always think about what is the next step to achieve it".

Kamal Haasan is all set to host 'Bigg Boss Tamil 7' from October 1st onwards. He will be shooting for 'KH 233' directed by H. Vinoth next followed by 'Kalki 2898' and will later move on to 'KH 234' directed by Mani Ratnam in mid 2024.
