Chennai, Oct 18: Apologizing for supporting demonetisation, veteran actor Kamal Hassan on Tuesday said he will again salute Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he also accept that the demonetisation was a wrong step.
In an article published in the Tamil magazine Anandavikatan, the actor asserted accepting and correcting mistakes is a marker for great leaders which Mahatma Gandhi was able to do.
Hassan said Modi should not be stubborn in arguing that the rabbit he had caught has three legs.
On his initial support for the note ban of 1,000 and 500 rupee notes, Hassan said he had welcomed the move and tweeted that it should be backed regardless of party affiliation.
“I thought people should bear with minor irritants in the goal to eradicate black money,” he stated.
Hassan revealed that some of his friends and those who know economics had called him and criticised his support for demonetisation.
Actor said he later thought that demonetisation was good but the manner in which it was implemented was not at all favorable.
Hassan’s remarks comes amid of strong indications that he would enter politics.
