After repeated rumours and statements in recent news reports, Gautami resorted to her blog where she has written that, recent news reports implying that she is associated with Kamal Haasan in a personal or professional capacity are completely baseless. She further stated that she holds no contact with Kamal Haasan ever since they got separated in Oct 2016. She also implied that she had to rebuild a stable and secure environment for her daughter and herself where they could breathe free of stress and tension. Further, her salary dues for her role as costume designer in Kamal Haasan’s earlier films Dasavatharam and Vishwaroopam are still partially pending.

The blog titled ‘Past is past and there are reasons for it’ quotes, “I categorically state that this is completely false and I have had no contact with Mr. Haasan since we formally parted ways in October of 2016. The period since my walking out has been consumed by my efforts to rebuild a stable and secure environment for my daughter and myself.”

Just a few days back when he launched his political party ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’ in Madurai, Haasan in his official speech spoke about empowering women and told men to give women space. Women empowerment indeed!
