On the day of the release of his new action thriller film 'Thoongavanam', Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan along with Gauthami met world-renowned Buddhist monk and spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

The meeting sparked surprise Kamal is a rationalist and kept away from spiritualism. But however the legendary's actor's comments issued in a press statement after the meeting seems that the meeting was mutually pleasing and delightful.

Here is what Kamal had to say about his meeting with Daalai Lama:

"Today (November 10) morning I met The Dalai Lamaji .

Have admired his resillience and purpose. Being a fan of Gandhi ji it is not to too farfetched to become his admirer. Inspite of the fact that I am rationalist and hence not spiritually bent my meeting was invigorating and felt purposeful.

My lack of interest in matters of things spiritual in nature was matched by his disinterest in cinema. 'I have not watched a single movie not even Television " he told me with a smile.

Yet he opined that I could use my craft and medium to propagate the great philosophy offered to the world by India: Ahinsa.

I confirmed my faith in Ahinsa and said I will venture soon in that direction.

For a man of his position he indulged in small talk with abandon a sign of a man who had no worldly worries.

Above all he loved the company of strangers. He reminded me of Jain Tamil poetry 2000year old

Everywhere is my town

All are my kin

( Yaadum ooray yaavarum kayLir)"

Meanwhile 'Thoongavanam' directed by Kamal's erstwhile assistant Rajsh.M.Selva has opened to phenomenally positive reviews and has been runnin to packed houses.
