Kamal Hassan meets Rajani and Karunanidhi ahead of party launch


The Delhi chief minister had called on Haasan here in September 2017, when the award-winning actor had started dropping hints of taking the political plunge.

The leaders were engrossed in discussion for over 15 minutes after which Kamal said Vijayakanth welcomed his entry into politics.

Veteran actor Kamal Haasan is all set to launch his political party on Wednesday in Madurai. People who are going to join us are coming tomorrow. "This momentous journey of meeting people across Tamil Nadu is neither an act of rebellion nor is it a gathering for glamour".

Kamal will enter into politics once he will be having a grand public meeting tomorrow evening in Madhurai of Tamil Nadu.

Actor Kamal Haasan on Wednesday began his political journey at Rameswaram. From Ramanathapuram - his hometown, he will move to Madurai, Dindigul and Sivaganga districts. I will explain the name of the new party and the essence of our policy.

Besides Kejriwal, Haasan has also met the chief ministers of Kerala and West Bengal, Pinarayi Vijayan and Mamata Banerjee, respectively, DMK president M Karunanidhi and "superstar" Rajinikanth ahead of his political foray.

Hassan had said he will be meeting people who he likes for the objective of "picking ideologies from everyone" before he takes his political plunge officially by launching his party and its symbol on February 21.

The actor's entry in Tamil politics is being keenly watched by political observers, especially at a time when the other cine-icon of the state - Rajinikanth- has also triggered speculations over his imminent political debut. "I hope his hue is not saffron", he had said. The actor later apologised for his remarks and said that he was misquoted. This is because Rajini himself had revealed to his supporters a few weeks ago that he too would be entering politics for the sake of people of Tamil Nadu.
