Gautami announced her separation from actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan on Tuesday.

Veteran star Kamal Haasan on Wednesday claimed that a statement issued in his name, about his split from partner Gautami Tadimalla, did not belong to him. “At this point of time, I am not issuing any statement,” he said, in an apparent reference to his split with Gautami.

The 61 year-old actor also said that someone was “playing” by issuing a statement in his name.

“It is indecent that someone is playing by issuing a statement in my name,” the actor-producer said in a Tamil tweet.

Haasan’s response came in the wake of a statement doing the rounds in the social media in his name on the pair’s split.

Gautami on Tuesday announced she was parting ways with Haasan, her partner for 13 years, terming it as “one of the most devastating decisions that I have ever had to make in my life”.

She did not specify any reason for the separation.

Meanwhile, Haasan’s daughter Shruti, who reportedly had a showdown with Gautami a few months ago, chose not to comment on the matter.

“Shruti has never commented on anyone’s personal life and their decisions. For her, what matters most is standing by, loving and respecting her family -- her parents and her sister (Akshara), no matter what,” a statement from her office said.

Earlier, there were reports that Shruti wasn’t happy with Gautami’s choice of clothes for her character in her father directed trilingual Sabaash Naidu and had brought in her own outfits.

The film will see the actor share screen space with her father for the first time. Shruti, however, had refuted the reports.
