Kamal Hassan, the all time great versatile actors in Tamil Cinema in particular and Indian cinema in general, always do total justice to the characters he portrays.
Kamal Hassan’s daughter Shruti Hassan was on the Tamil KBC, Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi (NVOK) as a celebrity guest. NVOK is anchored by the actor Surya.
When Shruti Hassan was asked for a temple related questions as part of the quiz, she opted for the lifeline and called her father Kamal Hassan. Kamal Hassan while answering her informed his real name is Parthasarathy and his mother calls him as Parthasarathy and not by his well established name.
No wonder that many of Kamal Hassan’s fans across the globe still are not aware of his real name Parthasarathy.
