Will join Ra­jinikanth if he en­ters politics: Haasan

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

Ac­tor-filmmaker Ka­mal Haasan, amidst news that he is plan­ning to launch his own party, has said he would be will­ing to join hands with su­per­star Ra­jinikanth if he takes the po­lit­i­cal plunge, re­ports IANS.

“Ra­jini and I have been dis­cussing pro­fes­sional mat­ters. If he joins politics, it won’t be dif­fi­cult for us to dis­cuss politics. I will join him pro­vided he en­ters politics. We have been ri­vals on the pro­fes­sional front, but we al­ways con­sult over key is­sues,” Haasan said on Fri­day, while ad­dress­ing ques­tions on video by a lead­ing Tamil daily.

Asked if he has de­cided a date to launch his party, he said: “It should be de­cided with­out any hurry.”

Haasan added that the day he plans to an­nounce his party, it may “co­in­cide with a revo­lu­tion”.

Over the last few months, Haasan has been very vo­cal about the cur­rent state of politics in Tamil Nadu.

Haasan has been drop­ping hints about tak­ing the po­lit­i­cal plunge.

Ear­lier this month, Haasan had held talks with Ker­ala Chief Min­is­ter Pi­narayi Vi­jayan and had told re­porters that they had also dis­cussed the state of politics in Tamil Nadu.

He also clar­i­fied that his colour is def­i­nitely not saf­fron when asked about his plans for any po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tion.
