Kamal Haasan tried his best to make it to his mentor, K Balachander’s funeral, but could not, as he was in the US at that time. Soon after his return to the city, the star visited K Balachander’s family at their residence in Mylapore today morning to offer his condolence in person. He was accompanied by actress Gauthami.

Meeting the press later, Kamal said that considering himself to be KB sir’s heir in the filmdom, he would continue the good work.
