Though, one can’t say that all his attempts were successful, majority of his films were super hits. The top business houses which need an endorsement for their products from such stars naturally approach them for their commercial ads. And quite naturally, many will be lured with huge amounts they offers for a small piece of work that can be conveniently accommodated in between their film schedules. So, are the big stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Sriya and many others appear in the commercial Ads. But, Kamal Hassan always maintained distance from them, because of his principles. He doesn’t want to endorse any product because he personally don’t want to advise the people to buy a particular product which he do not know about.
But, after years of persistence with his policy to skip the commercial ads, Kamal Hassan recently has signed an agreement for acting in a commercial ad, because he has a noble reason for his decision. Few months ago, during a shooting break when the members of the AIDS Control Society of India briefed him about the miserable state of the helpless AIDS patients in our country who were silently awaiting their death, Kamal Hassan was moved very much and agreed to commercial Ads to generate the funds for the needy. He said to be stated that, if endorsing certain product really helps the deserved then he need not hesitate for it anymore.
