Kamal Haasan At Makkal Needhi Maiam's Women's Day Celebrations

Actor-politician Kamal Haasan, who has begun another phase of his political journey visiting the Kongu region in Tamil Nadu, has addressed reports of him being funded by Christian missionaries. After addressing the public at Perundurai yesterday, the founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam, said on Sunday, “They say I’m funded by Christian missionaries and to that all I can do is laugh it off as it’s false.”

Haasan also visited Periyar’s memorial house in Erode, a few days after his statue was vandalised in Vellore district. Condemning the incident, Haasan had said, “We Tamilians are enough to protect him (Periyar). His stature and height is beyond the reach of such talks of vandalism.”
