Yesterday was a sad day in the history of Tamil Nadu after a shootout had taken place at the ongoing sterlite protests at Tuticorin. The incident has drawn sharp criticism from the common public to celebrities among whom Kamal Haasan has now expressed his dismay.

The actor turned politician was scheduled to be attending the swearing-in ceremony of JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister of Karnataka today. However, the violence at Tuticorin yesterday has made Kamal Haasan skip the event, who is now traveling to the violence-struck district.

Here’s the translation to Kamal Haasan’s tweet:

"A week back, I was welcomed to a rousing reception on your soil. My fellow brothers and sisters of Tuticorin, I am now coming towards you to share your sorrow".
