In conversation with actor Kamal Haasan and writer Jeyamohan | The Hindu

Of all the facets of #KamalHaasan — actor, director, screenwriter, dancer, singer, politician and more — perhaps the least discussed is his engagement with Tamil literature. He has often collaborated with writers for his films and has spoken of the various literary influences on his life and work.

Last week, Haasan caught up with prolific Tamil writer #Jeyamohan, whose new book, ‘Stories of the True’, the English translation of his bestselling short story collection, ‘Aram’, releases on July 27.
