Actress Gautami Tadimalla has parted ways with actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan. The actress recently confirmed the news on her blog. Both the actors have been staying together for more than a decade. Calling it one of the most devastating decisions, the actress revealed that paths of both the actors have irreversibly diverged and it has taken her a long time to accept this truth.
The actress wrote on her blog, "It is heartbreaking for me to have to say today that I and Mr. Haasan are no longer together. After almost 13 years together, it has been one of the most devastating decisions that I have ever had to make in my life.”
The actress not only wrote about her relationship but also revealed that it took her long to accept the heartbreaking truth. she said, "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," she explained.
The Dayamayudu actress also said that though this decision was difficult for her but it was necessary too.
"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," she wrote.
Gautami applauded Kamal Haasan for his work and also called it her pleasure to work with him.
"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," she added.
Gautami’s last onscreen venture was trilingual film ‘Manamantha’.She was last seen with Kamal Haasan in 2015 Tamil family drama ‘Papanasam’.
