After reports in a section of media claimed that Kamal Haasan was asked by the government to self-quarantine at home because he showed symptoms of Coronavirus, the Makkal Needhi Maiam Founder released an official statement denying it as a rumour
“To all those Who are concerned A big Thank you for your love Based on the notice stuck outside my house, news has been spread saying that I have been quarantined. But, most of you already know that I have not been living there for the past few years and the Makkal Needhi Maiam party office has been functioning from there. so, the news that I have been quarantined is not true. As a precautionary measure, I have undertaken social distancing as I requested the public too. would again reemphasize all of us to undertake social distancing as a precautionary measure. I also request all news agencies to verify news before breaking it so that fake news does not get spread,” read Haasan’s statement.
