Thursday, March 2, 2017 • Telugu Comments

As we reported yesterday, Kamal Hassan was at Buckingham Palace the other day to attend the ongoing Indo-UK Cultural Exchange celebration. Hassan`s name was chosen by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be a part of this delegation that was organised by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in order to celebrate Britain`s close ties with India.

Right outside the Buckingham Palace where a giant peacock, the National Bird of India, was projected to mark the celebration. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along-with The Duke of Edinburgh, The Earl of Wessex, Princess Eugenie of York, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Prince Michael of Kent were the other British Royal Family members who attended the event.

Recounting the meet, Hassan says, "The Queen seemed in good health and remembered her visit to India fondly. The Duke of Edinburgh was in great shape and health as well. The exchange was brief as there were too many people. During Her Majesty`s visit to India in 1997, she visited my film set. Probably, it's the only film shooting she has attended in her whole life."

He further says, "This is a great occasion to celebrate the shared history of India and the UK. The English language is the best example of that and I often refer to it as a great Indian language that unites us all".

He also shared a few pictures of this meeting with the Queen. Haasan has also thanked the Prime Minister for nominating him for the cultural event.
