Shruti: Reason behind Kamal Haasan's split with Gautami | Tamil Movie News - Times of India
For those who have known Gautami, her decision to start a live-in relationship with Kamal Haasan thirteen years ago should come as no. After 13 Yrs Of Live-In Relationship, Kamal And Gouthami Separate; Gouthami confirmed her separation from Kamal Haasan via her blog. Kamal Haasan and Gautami, who have been in a live-in relationship for the last 13 years, have split. One of the triggers for this seems to have.
It is never easy for anyone in a committed relationship to realise that their paths have irreversibly diverged and that the only choices in front of them are to either compromise with their dreams for life or to accept the truth of their solitude and move ahead. It has taken me a very long time, a couple of years at the very least, to accept this heartbreaking truth and come to this decision. It is not my intention to seek sympathy or assign blame.

I have understood through my life that change is inevitable and human nature will define that change for each individual. Not all of these changes might be what we expect or anticipate but that does not, in any way, negate the very real impact of these diverging priorities in a relationship.
This decision to set forth on my own at this stage in my life is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions any woman will ever have to make but it is a necessary one for me. For I am a mother first and foremost and I have a responsibility to my child to be the best mother that I can be.
And to do that, it is essential that I am at peace within myself. It is no secret that I have always been a fan of Mr. Haasan's since before I came to the film industry and I continue to admire and cheer on his monumental talent and achievements. I have stood by him through all his challenges and they have been precious moments for me.

I have also learned a great deal from working with him as costume designer on his films and I'm proud that I was able to do justice to his creative vision in those films. Along with all of his accomplishments to date, I know that there is much more to come from him for his audience and I look forward to applauding those successes.
I would like to say that I am sharing this monumental happening in my life because I have always lived my life in your midst, with dignity and grace to the best of my ability at all times, and all of you have been a part of my life's journey in so many ways.
I have received so much of love and support from you through the past 29 years and I would like to thank you for the many ways in which you kept me going through the darkest and most painful times in my life. With love and regards. But the police would have none of it.
And this I say with an innate sense of shame because I wish the likes of Khushbu and Gautami too enjoyed such a status. But then, Gautami was also a personality of her own, a strong one at that.
The strength came through shining gloriously when she was recuperating from breast cancer and fearlessly spoke of it, encouraging women to prioritise their health. Among celebrities who always hid their personal side - from health to relationships — Gautami was a class apart.
When I met her for an interview in mid s, she came across as a disarmingly honest person. I confronted her on the male domination in Tamil cinema and she confessed that she had not been old enough to choose roles that had more meaning in her heydays. She seemed worried about the trend of heavily hero-centric films and thought women should direct films more for that to change.
She encouraged me to ask about her cancer when I was slightly hesitant about it. By doing so, she made me realise it was okay for celebrities to be open with their fans.

It was her way of returning their love. To make them a bit more aware and bust a few more myths about cancer. Her act of disclosing her relationship status was yet again, as I see it, a demonstration of love and respect for her fans. By doing so, she was perhaps unknowingly busting a few myths about live-in relationships too and walking out of it, just as she did with breast cancer.
