HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW
If actor and Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) chief Kamal Haasan is taking time to spell out his plans for Tamil Nadu, it’s because they are being formulated by his 17-member team of advisers at Harvard University. Team ‘H 17’ is devising an economic development strategy for the state in the light of a ballooning Rs 25,000 lakh crore budget deficit projected by 2020. The star’s vision is to be rolled out in the MNM’s ideology document to be released in October. He’s not called ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ (global star) for nothing.
