It has brought forth an immense joy and celebration to nont alone the fans of Kamal Haasan, but for each and every film lover and buff. Following the great iconic personalities like Sathyajit Ray and Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan is now granted the titled of ‘Chevalier de L’Ordre Lettres’ by French Government. This title in English means ‘The Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters.
This is indeed one of the most prestigious titles that every actor would be keenly looking up for and it’s a rarity that French Government confers this one upon the actors here. Feeling very much happy about the title, Kamal Haasan had immediately shared the good news along with his fans and followers through the voice message saying, “This is a moment, where I am not feeling prideful, but so much humble.
It makes me run forward to achieve more on my passion. This might be a disappointment for my parents are not here to see this, but at the same time has made my masters, elders and younger ones in the family to be imbibed in joy. I bow down to my greatest inspirations like Sathyajit Ray and Sivaji Ganesa, who made the significance of ‘Chevalier’ known to even the common lay people. I thank Mr. Alexandre Ziegler, the Ambassador of France in India for citing my name of reference for this title…”
