Actor Aari, who has been very vocal about several issues — from his pro-Jallikattu stance to creating awareness about the use of traditional and native seeds — is at it again. Through his Maaruvom Maatruvom Foundation, the actor is urging Tamilians to start signing their names in Tamil. “It is not a shame. Signing in Tamil expresses your identity,” he asserts, having kicked off his campaign with 1,119 signatures at the Tamil Sangam conclave held in Dallas a few months ago.
At an event held in the city, Aari released a poster that read ‘Nam Tamil Mozhiyil Kaiyezhthiduvom’ and requested the actors and politicians of Tamil Nadu to change their signature to Tamil on all official communications. “I have changed my official signature on all bank-related documents and at my office. Now, I am touring through Tamil Nadu to spread awareness about this issue,” he said.
