Gautami and Kamal, who met on the making movie Apoorva Sagodharargal in 1989, started living-in together in 2005.
Mumbai: After living together for 13-long-years, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan and southern star Gautami have parted ways. In a post on her own blog, Gautami declared the news.
Named as ‘Life and decisions’, which was issued on November 1, 2016, Gautami writes, “After nearly 13 years together, it has been one of the most comforting decisions that I have forever had to make in my lifetime… It has taken me a very long period, a couple of years at the very least, to receive this heartbreaking truth and come to this decision.”
Gautami and Kamal seen on the sets of Apoorva Sagodharargal in 1989 and got into a live-in bond in year 2005, as they refused to wed each other because they lacked faith in the foundation of marriage.
Gautami was earlier married to a businessman named Sandeep Bhatia. The marriage only continued for a year as the two parted ways in 1999. The two have a daughter together called Subbalakshmi born in 1999.
Gautami, who starred opposite Haasan in films similar like ‘Aboorva Sagotharargal’, ‘Thevar Magan’ and the recent ‘Papanasam’, supposed it was not an easy choice to part ways with Kamal. “This judgment to set back on my own at this period in my life is perhaps one of the most difficult conclusions any woman will ever have to make but it is an essential one for me. For I am a mother first and primary and I have a responsibility to my kid to be the best mom that I can be. And to do that, it is essential that I am at peace in myself.”
Earlier, there were rumors making the rounds that all was not well among Ulaganayagan’s daughter Shruti, and Gautami. Reportedly, Shruti was not happy with Gautami’s styling in ‘Sabaash Naidu’, a film she’s doing with her dad, and had turned down the costumes that Kamal’s partner had carefully chosen for her. The buzz was too that there was a fight between Shruti and Gautami, and that a day’s shooting was called off. However, later Shruti squashed the rumor when her spokesperson whispered that all was well among the two.

Here’s Gautami’s full post:
It is painful 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 utmost devastating choices that I have ever had to make in my life. It is never easy for anybody in a committed bond to realise that their paths have irreversibly diverged and that the one choice in front of them are to either compromise with their dreams for life or to agree the truth of their solitude and move ahead. It has taken me a very lengthy time, a couple of years at the very least, to accept this heartbreaking truth and come to this decision.
It is not my purpose to seek sympathy or assign blame. I have understood over my life that change is predictable and human nature will define that change for each individual. Not all of these variations might be what we expect or anticipate but that does not, in any method, negate the very real impact of these diverging priorities in a bond. This decision to set forth on my own at this time in my life is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions any woman will ever have to make but it is a required one for me. For I am a mother first and foremost and I have a responsibility to my child to be the finest mother that I can be. And to do that, it is essential that I am at peace within for myself.
It is no top-secret that I have always been a fan of Mr. Haasan’s from the time I came to the film industry and I continue to respect and cheer on his monumental talent and successes. I have stood by him through all his challenges and they have been priceless moments for me. I have also learned a great deal from working with him as costume designer on his movies and I’m proud that I was able to do justice to his creative image in those films. Along with all of his accomplishments to time, I know that there is much more to come from him for his viewers and I look forward to applauding those achievements.
I would like to say that I am sharing this monumental happening in my lifetime because I have continually lived my life in your midst, with self-respect and grace to the best of my ability at all times, and all of you have remained a part of my life’s journey in several ways. I have received so much of love and care 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 hurting times in my life.
With love and regards,
