NEW DELHI: Actor Kamal Haasan who attended the reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II in Buckingham Palace, recollected his ‘Marudhanayagam’ shooting days when she had visited his film’s sets back in October 1997, during her brief stay in India.

Sharing the pictures on social media, the 62-year-old wrote, "The Queen seemed in good health and remembered her visit to India fondly. The Duke of Edinburgh was in great shape and health as well.”

“The exchange was brief as there were too many people. You might remember during Her Majesty's visit to India, she visited my film set. Probably the only film shooting she had attended in her whole life," he added.

The event flagged the beginning of the UK-India Year of Culture 2017 in which Finance Minister Arun Jaitley represented the Indian side along with a delegation.

Other personalities included Suresh Gopi, cricket legend Kapil Dev, singer and actor Gurdas Mann, sitar maestro Anoushka Shankar and fashion designers Manish Arora and Manish Malhotra.
