During the finals of Bigg Boss season four, Kamal Haasan launched his own fashion brand called “House of Khaddar” through which he is going to make collections which are entirely made of handmade fabric Khadi. “I want this to become a global trendsetter. I want to use this platform to start something new. This is more than a business and a social initiative that should provide empowerment and employment to many” Kamal Haasan said in the show.
Kamal Haasan, in the show, said that he recently visited the weavers of Kancheepuram and looked at their difficult plight. Saying that the craft is dying and the workers are getting low pay, Kamal announced “I visited a number of weavers and many of them are not having jobs and livelihood. I want this brand to make them way for the jobs” the actor said.
In few episodes, the actor also said that he was wearing “Khadi”. “Yes, I am wearing handloom Khadi suit. I recently got to meet a few weavers, and after that my approach to dressing has changed. I think my father’s habit of always wearing Khadi would come to me too. I wish you (youngsters) too to have that habit” he said to the contestants.
