Kamal Haasan apologises for supporting demonetisation 'in a hurry'

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the ban on high denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes on November 8 past year in a nationally televised address to check black money, Haasan was among the first few celebrities who had supported the move.

Kamal Haasan wrote, "I owe it to the people to apologise for supporting the plan in a hurry".

Nearly a year after the demonetisation move was announced in November 2016, Kamal Haasan has retracted his earlier support of the move, saying that he owed it to the people to apologise for supporting the move in a hurry.

Haasan then said the sign of a good leader is that he or she can accept his or her mistake.

The actor had earlier supported demonetisation, saying that the "move has to be celebrated across political party lines". "Most importantly by earnest taxpayers". Following this, the actor was roundly criticised on social media as well as his close circle of family and friends, he said.

On his initial support for the demonetisation of 1,000 and 500 rupee notes, Hassan said he had welcomed the move and tweeted that it should be supported regardless of party affiliation.

Then, said Haasan, with even more critics opposing demonetisation, he was filled with doubt since the government seemed to have no answer to the criticism.

"Gandhi was able to do it, today also it is possible", India Today reported the actor as writing.

In September, amid mounting speculation that he would take a political plunge, the actor hosted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at the office-cum-residence in Alwarpe and showered praise on him.
