I Demand Money Only for My Work in Kamal’s Films, What’s Wrong in It: Gautami

Responding to criticism that she demanded money from Kamal Haasan (more than a year after snapping her live-in relationship with actor-turned-politician) for work done in his earlier films mainly to embarrass him now, actress Gautami has stated that all she expected was the right payment for her work and nothing else.

Gautami, who broke her 13-year long live-in relationship with Kamal more than an year back citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ between them, demanded money to be paid for her work as costume designer in Kamal’s super-hit films such as Dasvathaaram and Vishwaroopam, which released many years back.

Kamal’s supporters said that there was ‘something more to it than meets the eye’ as the actress demands money after so many years and especially after Kamal recently floated his political outfit ‘Makkal Needhi Maiyyam’.

Responding to allegations of ‘politics’ involved in her demand, Gautami has said that she was only demanding money for her work and nothing more. “How long can I wait to be paid for my work,” she shot back. Kamal told newspersons yesterday that his company would take care of the payment if anything was due.
