Kamal Haasan joined the anti-Sterlite protesters in Tuticorin on Sunday and extended his support to him.
“The lives of people are more important than the money from copper. I have not come to Tuticorin for publicity. I have had enough publicity already,” he said.
Meanwhile, following stiff opposition from film industry including Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, Sterlite has responded to top stars.
In a tweet to Rajini, it said, “Dear @rajinikanth, we feel that incorrect and untrue information may have reached you about our operations in Thoothukudi. It is our sincere hope that these #facts will give you the true picture and help develop a balanced opinion. #TruthAloneTriumphs #FactsMatter.”
Responding to Kamal, it said, “Dear Kamal sir, as an organization we are committed to empowering our surrounding communities. In light of the recent misconceptions about us, we humbly submit the true facts and encourage you to visit our plant in Thoothukkudi.”
The company has posted similar messages to Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi and G V Prakash Kumar etc.
