  • Kamal-Haasan-Politicial-Party

Admiring "real life hero" Kamal's courage in speaking against injustice and communal forces in the country, Kejriwal virtually kicked off the campaign for the actor's new party by asking the people to choose between "corrupt DMK and AIADMK" and "honest Kamal Haasan". The party called "Makkal Needhi Maiam" is now in action. "That is why I have named my party - centre (people justice centre)", he said.

Dalit party leader Thol Thirumavalan told reporters that Haasan and Rajinikanth were agents of the BJP to weaken the DMK in Tamil Nadu. Simultaneously, the same was unveiled on all the social media platforms with a message that the party is yours (people) and it is here to stay. The actor-turned-politician launched his political party at a rally in Madurai after visiting former President late A.P.J.

Haasan visited House of Kalam in Rameswaram in Ramanathapuram district and was received warmly by the ex-President's family members.

He said people of Delhi started the trend of voting for honest political parties and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) got 67 out of 70 seats.

His supporters waved banners sporting popular catch words from his movies like Nammavarey, (Our man) and placards of Nalai Namathey, showing a smiling Haasan. "They can stop me from going to school but not from learning", he said later. My fans are aware of it.

Referring to the lyrics of a song from one of his films, Haasan said he was prepared to learn if he had to do so "by breaking barriers".

Asked what difference he saw between his avatars as an actor and that as a politician, he said the former has a bit of "barter system" in it.

He has said that he is "picking ideologies from everyone" before the launch of his party.

For the fans of Haasan, a "revolution is on the way" as they put up banners across Rameswaram to Madurai, saying, "naalai namadhe (tomorrow is ours)".
