Actor turned politician Kamal Haasan who is busy with his tour has made quite a few revelations. The actor has now revealed that Rajinikanth was aware of his decision to join the politics in a Tamil magazine. Taking pride in having called on greats such as former Chief Election Commissioner T N Seshan and veteran Communist leader R Nallakannu, the actor even declared that his secret meeting with the Superstar took place much before he went to meet these leaders.
Kamal Haasan said, “Before calling on these greats, I had met Rajini sir. It was when Big Boss shooting was going on at Poonamallee, Rajini was in ‘Kaala’ shooting at a nearby place. We were talking in a car. The meeting was to let him know the decision (of political plunge) before others knew it.” The decision was taken before long but is going to be implemented now, this is what was actor Kamal Haasan’s answer to his friend’s surprise query on the timing of the decision.
The actor further stated that both wanted to make it a point that the dignity they were maintaining should not be allowed to diminish even if they were to be in opposing camps in the course of their political stint, besides concurring to avoid cheap polemics and resolving to uphold values in politics.
On Wednesday the actor launched his political outfit. He was also trying to make his ideological leanings clear when he said he was not differentiating between the left and the right, but wanted to be with those who deliver goods to the nation by preferring to be in a place in the Centre and the people too wanted him to do so. The actor said, “We must do whatever we need to ensure we do not slip.”
