Kamal on Vikram Success
Responding to the gigantic success of Vikram, Kamal Haasan said that nobody believed him when he said that he can make films that can mint Rs 300 crore. "If everyone should progress, you need a leader who doesn't have to worry about the money. When I said that 'I can earn Rs 300 crore in a snap', nobody understood it. They thought that I was beating my chest. You can see now it's coming (Vikram box office collection)," Indian Express quoted Kamal as saying at a press meet.
Vikram is funded by Kamal Haasan's Raaj Kamal International. The multifaceted talent has now said that he will clear all the loans from the amount he earned from his latest flick.
What Will Kamal Do with Money Earned From Vikram?
"I will repay all my loans, I will eat to my heart's content and I will give whatever I can to my family and friends. After that if I don't have anything left, I will say I don't have any more to give. I don't have to pretend to help others by taking someone else's money. I don't want any grand titles. I just want to be a good human being," he said.
