The veteran actor believes that the West will flock to our country if we develop skilled labour
It has been a fruitful year for Kamal Haasan. His last release Papanasam was a huge box office success, which managed to hold its ground despite the might of Baahubali at box office.
Kamal Haasan, who also happens to be the chairman of industry body FICCI’s media and entertainment sector skill council, has announced a special certification programme for film industry workers. According to Kamal, the world cinema is currently scrutinising the Indian film industry and the foreign filmmakers will turn to India if we have skilled resources.
Talking to a leading daily, Mr Haasan praised the country's animation industry saying," It is already reversing. When PM said ‘Make in India’, the first industry that did it was media and entertainment, especially the animation industry. They are already making in India for Hollywood, like Life of Pi. Now a small portion of Hollywood’s hard labour is also done here. All the major studios have set-ups here. I foresee they will start making basic films here, because of cheap labour. For that we have to develop skills. If there is a skilled workforce and the labour laws are flexible, then they will ‘make’ here."
And the Tamil superstar believes that his certification course for film industry workers will help a great deal in sharpening of skills to international standards.
