If the grapevine is to be believed, actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan
will, for the first time in his career, endorse textile showroom
brand, Pothys. An advertisement for the same may be shot here in
Chennai this week.
"Actor-photographer Krishna will shoot this video in a special
set. It will be a two-minute long advertisement and is likely to go
on air very soon," a source from the production team told IANS.
In a career spanning over five decades, Mr. Haasan has never
endorsed a brand. It is said that his change of mind came in a bid
to help patients suffering from AIDS.
The Vishwaroopam actor will be donating his
remuneration acquired from the advertisement to help inpatients,
especially kids fighting the deadly virus. It is to be noted that
not long ago, Kamal's daughter Shruti Haasan endorsed Pothys' boutique showroom.
The 60-year-old actor currently awaits the release of his
Tamil-Telugu bilingualneo-noir crime thriller Thoonga
Vanam. The upcoming film stars Prakash Raj, Trisha, Kishore,
Asha Sharath and Sampath Raj in key roles.
