An Indian film actor, director, screenwriter, producer and the last but the least playback singer, Kamal Hassan has successfully been reigning in the Tamil Film Industry. He has today in no time made a big name in the Indian Cinema. Not only in his professional life but even in his personal life is considered to be an open book. So much is already been spoken on his life and there are things that have to be still told about. There have been many women in his life but even today at the age of 65 the actor remains to be single.
Right from the yesteryear the actresses like Srividya, Dancer Vani Ganpathi, Gujarti actress Sarika, to the other well-known actress like Simran Bagga and Goutami Kamal Hassan Relationship with all these actresses have been in the talk always. It has always been the women in his life who has inspired him in some or the other way, and at some point has even disrupted his current relationship. Out of all these women listed above he was successfully married to Vani and Sarika.
In one of an interview with Pinksvilla he had stated that, I as an actor never ever believed in marriages. People get married because of peer pressure but I don’t subscribe to the ‘herd mentality’. I shouldn’t have married. I married for the convenience of my women. Vani wouldn’t live-in and I wasn’t strong enough to put my foot down. And the society was such that Sarika and I couldn’t book a hotel room together even after we had two daughters.”
It was in the early days of his career and during the 1970’s, his first relationship news was out and it was with the actress srividya. Srividya was two years elder to Kamal Hassan, and have shared the screen space in many number of movies out of which the famous one was Apoorva Raagangal.
The relationship of the two did not last very long, and srividya then got married to George Thomas who was one of the assistant director of the Malayalam films. In the year 2006 Kamal visited Vidhya in the hospital when she was actually on her death bed. In fact the movie Thirakkatha released in 2008 was inspired on their love story.
Soon after the breakup with Srividya, kamal hassan fell in love with a famous dancer Vani Ganpathi. There is not much information on how they met and all, but this is for sure that they were introduced by some of their common friends. Even when the actor does not believe in marriages, he went ahead and tied a knot with Vani as she was not comfortable with a live in relationship. Their relationship was going really good unless and until Sarika and Kamal got entangled with her in 1978. And after ten years of their marriage they ended up their relationship due to the reason mentioned above and vani unable to conceive.
Haasan’s affair with Sarika was never famous even during that specific period of time. Kamal Hassan got into a relationship with this Gujarti actress Sarika who was also famous in the bollywood industry, even before he was separated from Vani and they had started living together. And after being in a live-in relationship for a longer period of time, they had two beautiful kids who were named as Shruti Haasan and Akshara Haasan, both of them are now the famous Bollywood actresses.
Since their children were born before their wedding, the society started pouring pressure on them. This then made Sarika and Kamal walked down the aisle in 1988. And he immediately applied for divorce with Vani much the year 2002. Everything was going really fine between the two unless and until another woman came in, and it was none other than Sarika’s best friend, Goutami.
It is believed that Kamal Hassan had an affair with his co-star and well known Tamil actress Simran Bagga, when he was still in a relationship these two actresses Sarika and Goutami. Even though Simran was very much younger to him, and was already married and had two daughters, nothing stopped him from falling in love with her again.
Kamal met Simran in the year 2000s. And their relationship turned out to be stronger in the year 2001, after the shoot of their tamil film Pammal K. Sambandam. By the end of it, it is believed that the two started having hots for each other and buzz was that they shared a romantic rapport. However, Simran and Kamal’s relationship was short-lived, and simran moved on getting married to another man.
Kamal Hassan was in a live-in relationship with actress Gautami. She came into his life with one daughter from the first husband. After spending more than a decade together in a live-in, their relationship did not work well and the two decided to part ways. On November 1, 2016, Goutami took to her blog and officially announced the partition. This is what she wrote then:
It is heart-breaking for me to have to say today that I and Mr. Haasan are no longer together. After almost 13 years together, it has been one of the most devastating decisions that I have ever had to make in my life. It is never easy for anyone in a committed relationship to realise that their paths have irreversibly diverged and that the only choices in front of them are to either compromise with their dreams for life or to accept the truth of their solitude and move ahead.”
It further said
It has taken me a very long time, a couple of years at the very least, to accept this heartbreaking truth and come to this decision. It is not my intention to seek sympathy or assign blame. I have understood through my life that change is inevitable and human nature will define that change for each individual. Not all of these changes might be what we expect or anticipate but that does not, in any way, negate the very real impact of these diverging priorities in a relationship. This decision to set forth on my own at this stage in my life is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions any woman will ever have to make but it is a necessary one for me. For I am a mother first and foremost and I have a responsibility to my child to be the best mother that I can be.”
No matter what has happened in their life, Goutami and Kamal Hassan have always stood by each other in every aspect of their life. Even when she was suffering from cancer, Kamal did not hesitate even for a second to provide her the full support. So these were the few ladies who were involved in Kamal Hassan life.
