Regarded by most, as one of India's finest actors today, Kamal Hasan began his love affair with cinema when he was hardly nine. This was as child artist in Kalathoor Kannamma (1960).

In a career, spanning four decades and over 200 films, Kamal Hasan's passion for the medium has made his work, a near unattainable benchmark, for the rest in the business.

He has given viewers unforgettable performances - as a village idiot in Padhinaaru Vayadhinile, a love-struck youth in Ek duje ke liye (Hindi), a Robin Hood styled mafia boss in Naayagan, a midget in Apoorva Sahodarargal, an obsessed lover in Guna, a cross-dressed nanny in Avvai Shanmughi and an old patriot in Indian. And his versatility has necessitated path-breaking make-up.

His directorial work Hey Ram (centered round Mahatma Gandhi's assassination) cost Rs 16 crore to make. But his proposed magnum opus (launched by Queen Elizabeth on her visit to Chennai in 1999) is the period film titled Marudanaayagam.

Kamal Hasan has won the National Award thrice (for performances in Moondraam Pirai, Naayagan and Indian). He has also been honoured with the Padmashri.
