Kamal Haasan stands different from the lot. He holds contrastingly different views on relationship and marriage, compared to his peers in a patriarchal society which views infidelity as a crime.
Ulaganayagan on Relationship
In an interview earlier, Kamal Haasan, talking about relationship, had said that he never had one-night stands and for him it is all about commitment. "Let me talk in a very male tone. If you are talking about scores, mine is the lowest amongst my peers. Numbers don't matter to me, it is always about commitment for me. I have never had one-night stands ever. It can't work for me and that way I am like a woman as they too are troubled with that," The Times of India had quoted him as saying.
Talking about different kind of relationship that a man can have, the Ulaganayagan said, "That way, if you look at the numbers, that's all there is to my life. I could keep a relationship with Mr Balachander for all my life. I have had a bad relationship with my mother, but there is nothing called a divorce with her. With your father, it's always about unconditional love. Only with your wife you talk this language. If she introduces a man to me and says he is like a dad to her, will I break our relationship? No. I will probably make him my best friend. But that can never happen with a wife introducing you to another man, unless it is in the Mahabharat, may be,"
