Universal hero Kamal Hassan who has been in the film industry for more than five decades has stayed away from brand endorsements for so long. Recently, he surprised everyone by accepting to be the face of Pothys Textiles showroom in Chennai.
As per sources, due to the financial issues of Kamal, he has accepted to do the ads. Although he has been doing films on a continuous basis, none of his films are becoming huge hits at the box office, so he is forced to depend on Commercial Ads to earn extra income to bail out his long pending project ‘Viswaroopam 2’.
His case is just similar to Amitabh Bachchan, who accepted to endorse brands when his AB Corp ran into financial troubles.
