Kamal Haasan hogged all attention at a meeting of students, opinion makers and other prominent citizens addressed by United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the Anna Centenary Library in Chennai on Wednesday.
Along with Gauthami, the ace actor attended the meeting, which went up to 45 minutes. Hillary, while starting her address, pleasantly surprised the audience by greeting them with ‘Vanakkam'. And needless to say, the response to her ‘Vanakkam’ was overwhelming.
Later, Hillary Clinton shared Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's concern over the plight of internally-displaced Sri Lankan Tamils living in camps and told her that the US was looking at “innovative and creative ideas” in breaking the impasse.
Hillary’s response, according to an official release from the Tamil Nadu government, came when Jayalalithaa observed that even though the war in Sri Lanka was over two years ago, Tamils in Jaffna were still unable to go back to their homes.
