A day after actress Gautami announced the end of their 13-year relationship, Tamil star Kamal Haasan said in a tweet that a statement attributed to him in sections of the press had not actually been made by him.
"Uncivilised act by someone to release statements in my name. At the moment I'm not going to release any statement," read a tweet in Tamil posted on the actor's Twitter account on Wednesday.
Mr Haasan was perhaps referring to an article which quoted him as saying: "Whatever gives her comfort and solace is fine by me. My feelings at the moment are of no importance. What matters is that Gautami and Subbu should be comfortable and happy. I wish them all the best and want them to know I am there for them whenever they need me. I am blessed with three daughters - Shruti, Akshara and Subbulakshmi. I consider myself the luckiest father in the world."
On Tuesday, Gautami wrote a blog post titled 'Life and Decisions' in which she revealed that she was no longer with Mr Haasan.
"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," she wrote, adding that she continued to admire Mr Haasan's 'monumental talent.'
Gautami Tadimalla, 48, and Kamal Haasan, 61, lived together for about 13 years. They have co-starred in films like Apoorva Sagodharargal and were last seen together in 2015's Papanasam.
Gautami is divorced from businessman Sandeep Bhatia, with whom she has a daughter. Kamal Haasan has been married twice and has two daughters - Shruti and Akshara, both actresses - with second wife Sarika.
