"This is Why I Stopped Acting!" - Kamal Haasan Reveals @ Ponggu Tamil 2019

  • 04 Jan 2019

Majestic and vibrant, Ponggu Tamil 2019 was officially launched by Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan, the Kollywood's embodiment of artistry. He has made his life's mission to learn and excel in many different art forms to exhibit in his films and bring it to the mass audience.

Now, he's quitting the cine industry in order to venture into another 'battlefield'. While, we all know his involvement in politics paved his way out of the cinema industry, at the Ponggu Tamil launch, he revealed another reason why he called it quits.

In response to the hosts' compliments of his expertise in many Tamil Nadu's village arts and crafts, Kamal Haasan said that he stopped acting after understanding it.

"I won't say I know and excel in Tamil Nadu's art forms. I understand them a little. That's the truth. When you understand something, you won't have any more work. Like how I stopped acting, after understanding it."

What a down-to-earth explanation! Speaking about the Tamil language, he further added, "Every Tamilian is an ambassador for the Tamil language".

"Being a Tamilian is not a qualification, it's your identity. You earn the qualification with your efforts!"

Last year, the multi-talented actor founded a political party Makkal Needhi Maiam at a public meeting in Madurai. We wish to see him achieve greater heights in this new venture as he did in the cinema world.

Don't miss the Ponggu Tamil 2019 happening at YMCA Royapettah from today till 6th January 2019!
