With a film career spanning over four decades, Kamal Haasan is a Kollywood legend and ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ to millions of his fans in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Songs from even decades-old Kamal Haasan movies are still popular not merely in Tamil Nadu but with the diaspora in the U.S. and elsewhere as well.
