According to TV reports, Kamal has said that since he is in the US where he is shooting for his upcoming film, he was unable to pay his last respects in person to the late AIADMK chief. It is worth noting that a few years ago, Kamal and Jayalalithaa got into a major row during the release of the actor’s Vishwaroopam.
