Kamal Haasan surveyed the damage caused to the Ennore Creek earlier this week. The actor, who has been accused of arm-chair activism by his critics, is perhaps hopeful that this visit will prove his intentions when it comes to the welfare of Tamil Nadu.
The actor took to social media yesterday to raise awareness about the damage caused to the Kosasthalaiyar River in North Chennai. Effluents and harmful sewage from a nearby thermal power plant has resulted in the loss of some varieties of fish. This has severely damaged the livelihood of the local fishermen community.

Kamal, in recent times, has upped his social activism. He has espoused several causes since the beginning of this year, leading many to believe that he’d actively join politics later this year. He confirmed this report and even asked his followers to get ready to ‘march to the fort’- a reference to Chennai’s St.George’s Fort – the seat of Tamil Nadu’s political power.
