Back in 1997, it was Queen Elizabeth who was the chief guest at the launch of Kamal Haasan’s dream project Marudhanayagam in Chennai.
After two decades, Kamal has met her again, this time at her palace in London. The ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ was part of an Indian delegation which was accorded the honour of participating in the UK India Year of Culture Reception.
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, cricketing legend Kapil Dev and others were also present.
Happy about meeting the queen, Kamal posted on his social media page: “The Queen seemed in good health and remembered her visit to India fondly. The Duke of Edinburgh was in great shape and health as well. The exchange was brief as there were too many people.”
He added: “You might remember during Her Majesty’s visit to India, she visited my film set. Probably the only film shooting she had attended in her whole life.”
Kamal also posted his pictures with the queen on his Facebook page.
