Commenting on the brand, Kamal Haasan says, “What we are proud of is that we have chosen a material which made a world political statement for India. Khadi is very closely associated to our history and we take pride in it. From a pure comfort point of view, Khadi is an all-weather textile. It can take on the discontent of the winter as well as the sweat and toil of the summer. Our endeavour is to make Khadi relatable to the young urban market and uplift the weavers and artisans who create this beautiful art.”

The 66-year-old is currently hosting the fifth season of Bigg Boss Tamil, and is shooting his next project Vikram with Lokesh Kanagaraj.
