Veteran actor Sarathkumar carved a name for himself with the choice of films. Today, he is a successful actor not just in Tamil, but also in Telugu. He is also a politician who has his own set of followers and ideologies. In a recent interview, he opened up about his equation with his daughter.
In a recent interview, he apologized to his daughter Varalaxmi Sarathkumar for not helping her during difficult times. Varalaxmi made a grand debut in Kollywood with Podaa Podi, which hit the theatres in 2012. The film took a while before hitting the theatres as it was stuck in a financial problem.
He said, "My daughter Varalaxmi was waiting for quite some time for the release of her debut film Podaa Podi. I should have helped her as a dad when she was going through some difficulties. But, I didn't. I consider myself as a father who has let down his daughter. Today, to see her enjoying the space that she is in, I feel immensely proud. I'm happy. Congratulations my daughter!"
The actor is presently shooting for his upcoming film, Ponniyin Selvan, directed by Mani Ratnam. Apart from Ponniyin Selvan, he is also a part of Pirandhanaal Parasakthi, Vaanam Kottatumm, Na Na, Rendavathu Padam and a web-series.
