Kamal Haasan Trolled On Shruti Iyengar Video

Actor-turned-politician Kamal on June 29, In an interactive session with his fans on Twitter he was asked by a user, “how would you take caste to the next generation? Will it be optional for school and college admissions?”. To this, Kamal replied, “I refused to fill in the caste & religion column in both my daughters’ school admission certificate. That’s the only way, it will pass on to the next generation. Every individual should start contributing fr progress. Kerala started implementing the same. Those who do should be celebrated (sic).”

However, Twitterverse then dug up Shruti’s old interview video dating 2014 on a chat show  ‘Look who’s talking with Niranjan’, she said, “It is because you’re Iyengar and I am Iyengar and we are both creative. And there’s a very high chance that nobody will marry either of us.”

“@ikamalhaasan ur attempts to abolish caste has totally failed sir despite you not filling in the school application. Start your reform from home sir. Not filling in caste is not a solution, bring the kids up in a way they don’t know their caste #Hypocrite,” wrote one user.
