"I Do Not Speak Without Proof": Gautami On Her Pending Salary From Kamal HaasanShare
By Vivek Raj [ February 27, 2018 ]
Recently, actor Gautami had written a blog post clarifying she holds no association on a personal or professional level with her former partner and actor turned politician, Kamal Haasan.
She further went on to state she was unpaid by Raaj Kamal Films International (RKFI) for her contributions as a costume designer for her work in films namely Vishwaroopam and Dasavatharam.
Past is past – and there are reasons for it. https://t.co/l4o8Vj4IS0— Gautami (@gautamitads) February 24, 2018
Raaj Kamal Films International in their response however denied the allegations and asked for proof, if at all in order to provide compensation.
Meanwhile, Gautami once again took to Twitter to share a new blog post titled "Proof and Judgments" she had penned a short while back today morning in which she has gone on to state she "would not speak without reason or proof".
To all of those people who were so quick to judge me, you have known me for 30 years and I have never been one to throw my words around. When I say something about anyone, I do not speak without reason. And I do not speak without proof. https://t.co/hZLVULhcdu— Gautami (@gautamitads) February 27, 2018
Her blog post is as follows:
"PROOF AND JUDGEMENTS
My reason for having written the “Past is Past” letter is in the first line – to state that I have nothing to do with Mr. Haasan in any way and why. I was forced to make this statement at this time because of the extent of speculation about my “allegiance & support” coming from all sides. I expected nothing from anyone, least of all pending salaries from a company that I had worked for in a professional capacity. And, yes, I am surprised & disturbed by the harsh & judgemental reactions from people who know no details about the situation.
My reasons for my decision to leave were several and they are strong enough to be irreversible. As a single mother, who is fighting to start life again and build a secure future on her own, I need to concentrate my energies on positive and constructive matters. There is so much in this life that is good, honest & joyful and I look towards that. There are good & compassionate human beings in this world and I look for those people to be in my life.
Bad & unhappy things happen to all of us in life but we have a choice – to decide to look on the bright side & take on challenges with a positive attitude. That is what I have done.
After everything I have been through in my life since the past 20 years, I have made a choice to look for positivity & peace in my life. I have found motivation & joy in working to help my people and that is my path in life. I seek no validation for my decision but the door is wide open for anyone who wants to join us in working for our society.
In closing I would like to express my deepest love and gratitude for the love and support from so many who have reached out to me. Your words mean so much to me. They give me so much strength. Thank you…
…And to all of those people who were so quick to judge me – you have known me for 30 years and I have never been one to throw my words around. When I say something about anyone, I do not speak without reason. And I do not speak without proof.
With love & in peace,
27th Feb 2018"
We will now have to wait and see how Raaj Kamal Film International responds to Gautami’s latest statement.
