Actor Kamal Haasan has ended the suspense over his political entry, saying he will form his own political party soon.
The actor said he was thinking of launching a political party, out of compulsion and not choice.
“Yes, I am thinking on those lines, not out of choice but compulsion. Which existent political party can provide me with a platform or an ideology that will match my reformatory goals in politics?” said the actor .
“The politics of Tamil Nadu can change and I want to bring about that change, no matter how slow it may be,” actor added.
“Don’t vote me in and then wait for five years to vote me out. Sack me immediately if I don’t deliver,” he said.
Commenting on the current political situation in Tamil Nadu, Kamal Haasan said the sacking of VK Sasikala as the general secretary of the ruling AIAMDK was a “solid step forward”.
Following his meeting with Vijayan, speculation had been rife that he would join the CPI(M).
The buzz was fuelled by his recent criticism of the AIADMK and DMK working president MK Stalin.
A source from Kamal’s fan club association said, “We still are in the planning phase and discussing ideas. He is keen to enter politics but is currently looking at starting a movement of sorts to gauge public support before taking the final plunge.”
His entry into politics comes at a time when superstar Rajinikanth too said he is holding discussions but will take a decision when the time is right.
So the two superstars have been making headlines as the State Govt remains mute spectators and the DMK says both are welcome to join the party.
