"I have signed up with Sunil Doshi's company because I believe it is India's most respected talent management firm and is known to provide excellent strategic counsel to several top celebrities and personalities.
I look forward to yet another first - that of brand endorsement - in my creative life and to keep being able to do my bit for society," Kamal Haasan said. In his five-decade-long career so far, he has never endorsed any brand.
Sunil Doshi, managing director of the company says that Kamal Haasan has taken this step to raise funds for the social causes he supports.
"Kamal Haasan has certain plans for his work in social service, but he is also unwilling to rely on external sources of funding those plans. Therefore, he feels that endorsements with leading companies and brands that have a strong commitment to society and causes would be an appropriate and independent means of fulfilling his vision," Doshi said.
"We shall soon announce which brand he will be endorsing. He is known for his ideals and principles, and needless to say, we shall advise him to pick a brand that fits with his values and stature, and will have a campaign to match," he added.
The talent management company has been associated with the entire Bachchan family as well as Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukerji, Govinda, Fardeen Khan and Sonali Bendre.
