Kamal Haasan throughout the audio launch of Uttama Villain was in commemoration of his father-like-mentor Late K Balachandar. As he walked through the sliding doors on the dais, his eyes moistened on hearing his erstwhile speech. Speaking on the occasion, he said, “Without K Balachandar, there would have been no Kamal Haasan. My friend Rajnikanth was introduced by KB sir, but he would have become a superstar even without him. He would have gained remarkable prominence and fame through films like ‘Murattu Kaalai’, but not me. If K Balachandar hadn’t offered me a chance, the chapter of Kamal Haasan would have declined before years.” The audio launch was a special affair spangled with intellectual panoramas with best planning as it started and completed on scheduled time.
