It was a trip down memory lane for superstar Kamal Haasan, who was in Bengaluru to promote his Vikram. The city holds a special place in his heart as he spent a lot of time here during his young years. “I used to frequently come to Bengaluru and had met some good people,” says the legendary actor, who specially mentioned Suchitra Film Society.
Every time director Puttanna Kanagal made a film, director K Balachander would drive down to Bengaluru, just to watch the film on the first day of its release. “And I would often accompany him,” he recalls.
