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 bilingual neo-noir crime thriller Thoonga Vanam. The upcoming film stars Prakash Raj, Trisha, Kishore, Asha Sharath and Sampath Raj in key roles.
