Kamal Haasan made a cancer-stricken fan’s wish come true after the veteran actor connected with him through a video call. Haasan interacted with his fan Saketh, who has been diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer. During the call, a visibly emotional Haasan expressed his solidarity with Saketh and his family. “I am sure to jump back for my little one, my wife and my family," Saketh said in the video. “You must," Haasan responded before adding, “I always say nobody is a loser. Because you were born after winning a battle against 40 million of your brothers. It is a tragedy, but you won. You are destined to win. So keep trying."
