Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is all set to meet veteran actor Kamal Haasan today at his Chennai residence.
And the star is apparently excited about the meeting, as he has organised a lavish lunch for the Aam Aadmi Party convenor.
Kamal Haasan has given indications in the past on joining politics, and has chosen to meet Kejriwal over any BJP or Congress leader.
The meeting was kept a secret until a few days ago. Kejriwal chose lunchtime so he could catch an early morning flight from Delhi and return to the Capital by late evening.
Sources say Kejriwal is now looking to spread AAP’s reach beyond Delhi with the help of popular personalities.
Though Haasan has refused to openly side with any ideologies so far, according to sources, he may come out in the open after his meeting with the Delhi CM.
Reportedly, Kejriwal dialled the number of actor Rajinikanth as well, and will kick-start a series of such meetings with celebrities in various states in the coming months.
However, he has limited his meeting to only Kamal Haasan in Chennai for Thursday, to understand how politics in Tamil Nadu is evolving.
