In a condolence message, Kamal said, “Comedians are invariably critics of society who have masked their anger with humour. Constantly maintaining a funny facade leads to depression. Robin Williams’ true nature is being quick to tears. You can see it in his films.”
Kamal added: “Robin Williams brought dignity to male crying. I like him for his talent,”
The actor who draws inspiration from Williams’ acting skills (his Avvai Shanmughi was inspired from Rob’s Mrs Doubtfire movie) said that If the alleged story about his suicide is true, then he’d dislike him for ending his life before his due date of expiry came!
Kamal was quoted saying “That’s a copout that I don’t expect of an artist of his caliber. Same applies to my Indian idol Guru Dutt who too has allegedly ended life with a suicide.”
