Chennai: Southern film star Kamal Hassan on Saturday exhorted students to find out what are the evils plaguing the country and how can those be eliminated.
Addressing a huge gathering of students at a college in Perumalpattu, Hassan said, "It is your duty to update yourself about what is happening in the country.''
''Please understand who is robbing you and your country," the Tamil film veteran said.
The acclaimed actor also reminded the students that the youths are the harbinger of change and a transformation is possible only if the youths realise their true potential.
''If the change has to take place, it is possible only through you (youth power),'' Hassan said.

"I do not say I will bring the change or I can make the change. No, I cannot. I think the time has come to prove that you are 'me'," Hassan said.
The veteran actor urged the students to express their anger at why other students in the state were not getting the same atmosphere that the students of this college were getting.
Kamal has recently said that he will formally announce the name of his soon-to-be-launched political party in the month of February.
He is currently on a state-wide tour to understand the mood and the expectations of voters across the Tamil Nadu.
