Kamal Haasan, who will be flagging off his political journey starting next week on February 21 shared his opinion on the landmark judgment stating he was a bit startled by the verdict.

Although a bit shocked by the judgment, he did praise the Apex Court for stating water cannot be owned by any state and that this to him is the only consoling factor.
