Kamal Haasan has mourned the death of Hollywood comedian Robin Williams, who died on August 10. The Tamil actor was inspired by the late actor’s film, Mrs Doubtfire, to make Avvai Shanmugi.

Haasan said: “Comedians are invariably critics of society who have masked their anger with humour. Constantly maintaining a funny facade leads to depression.

“Robin Williams’ true nature is being quick to tears. You can see it in his films.”

However, the Tamil actor says that he dislikes the star if suicide reports turn out to be true. Haasan concludes: “Robin Williams brought dignity to male crying.

“If the alleged story about his suicide is true, then I dislike him for ending his life before his due date of expiry.” – Oneindia.in
