Kamal Haasan donates Rs 20 lakh to set up Tamil chair in Harvard University


Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan has donated Rs 20 Lakh on Thursday for setting up a Tamil chair in the Harvard University. Actor and professor K Gnanasambandan received the donation from Kamal at an event here attended by prominent personalities and writers belonging to the Tamil diaspora.

Speaking on the occasion, the professor Gnanasambandan said, "A year ago, Kamal Haasan had urged Tamils all over the world to contribute to the Tamil chair at Harvard. Today, he said it won't be enough if I contribute with words alone. I will also have to contribute in cash."
The Tamil Nadu government had earlier sanctioned Rs 10 crore for the setting up of the Tamil chair. Film personalities including Tamil Film Producers Council president Vishal, AR Rahman, GV Prakash, Surya, Karnas had donated funds for the cause. The Tamil chair will enable research in Tamil and its literary tradition at Harvard.
