He might be almost 70, but Kamal Haasan is still extremely passionate about his calling – movies, and love for it takes him across the world. On and off, the ulaganayagan shares some precious clicks from his trips with his fans too and most recently, they were photos from Africa, Italy and Taipei. The photos reflected his excitement about photography, travelling and also his work and his admirers lapped them up in no time.
Rocking it in Africa
The actor's latest photo is from Africa's Ficksburg Bridge, which is located on the border between South Africa and Lesotho. The actor sports a white T-shirt and pants in the picture and is visibly enjoying photography. Ficksburg bridge is a road-cum-rail bridge across the River Caledon between Ficksburg in South Africa and Maputsoe in Lesotho.The bridge is a major route to transport goods from Lesotho to South Africa and beyond. It is also an important crossing point for tourists travelling between the two countries.
On the lap of pretty Italy
Before posting the photos from South Africa, Kamal Haasan had also shared a picture from Italy. The location mentioned is the amazing Amalfi shore in the Campania region of southern Italy.
The Amalfi shore is renowned for picturesque villages such as Positano and Ravello, stunning cliffs and houses painted with striking colours. Major attractions of the region include the St Andrew Cathedral built in the eleventh century and Villa Rufolo constructed in the thirteenth century, among others.
Lenasia South, Africa
In another photo, Kamal Haasan is seen in the cockpit of an aircraft with the pilot. The picture has been clicked at Lenasia South, which is around 35 km from the city centre of Johannesburg, South Africa’s biggest metropolis.
Dadaocheng Theater, Taipei
A historic theatre at Taipei in Taiwan is also seen in the photos shared by the actor, who interestingly captioned it, 'Glad live theatre lives in Taipei.' Located in the Ximending area of Taipei, the Dadaocheng Theater is also known as Ximending Red House Theater.
Built during the Japanese colonial period in 1908, the theatre earlier functioned as a public market. In the 1940s, the building was converted into a theatre and soon became a popular venue staging Chinese opera, puppet shows and other traditional performing arts.
Currently, traditional Taiwanese opera, music concerts, dance programmes and several other cultural events take place at the theatre. In addition, workshops and classes on puppetry, calligraphy and Chinese opera are also organised.
