Kamal Hassan began his career as a child actor. Besides acting he started to work as a choreographer in films when he was young. He developed under the great influence of director K. Balachander and in 1978 Kamal Hassan became famous acting in K. Balachander's Maro Charithra. His two best films of the 1980s are Sagara Sangama and Swati Mutyam.

Since then he has acted in more than 120 films in all south Indian languages and in Hindi, where he made his remarkable appearance in Dimple Kapadia's big comeback film Saagar opposite Rishi Kapoor. Since the mid 1990s he has also produced, scripted and directed movies. His production Hey Ram starring Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukherjee and, of course, himself is a surprising film on the conflict between Gandhi's supporters of non-violence and radical movements around the time of India's independence.

His latest successes were Anbe Sivam and Vasool Raja MBBS, which is the Tamil remake of the successful Hindi comedy Munnabhai MBBS. In 2008 he released his mega production Dasavatharam, in which he acted in ten roles.
