Actor- politician Kamal Haasan celebrated his 65th birthday at his hometown Paramakudi. He unveiled the bust of his late father D Srinivasan and announced that a Skill Development Centre would be set up by his family to train the youth to become entrepreneurs.
He stressed the importance of honing one’s skills. He said that his skills centre would have a University supporting it. He felt that development of skills was already happening in a big way throughout the country and Tamilnadu was lagging behind. He is currently working on his movie Indian 2. He wanted the youth to develop their skills and seek employment in their own hometowns instead of migrating to big cities in search of employment.
