Few days ago, actor Kamal Haasan confirmed of his entry into politics. He was also very clear that he wouldn’t join any party but float his own as no political party would identify with his ideologies.
The actor had dropped enough hints of him entering politics in the last few months. Now in an interview with IndiaTimes, the veteran actor has gone on confirm that he would quit acting before joining politics.
When asked if he would quit cinema for politics, he said Well, if I take up a position legally, I will have to. It will be painful. I will still be connected (to cinema) but won’t be actively engaging in it because my commitment would be something else.”
On being asked if he would choose Congress of DMK for a tie-up, the actor said,”It doesn’t matter. Only that they do not hinder the path I have taken.I am against corruption. I won’t have a truck with corrupt people.There the uncompromising attitude will come in. That leaves me with very little choice.”
Only last week, Kamal Haasan met up with the Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, fuelling rumours of a possible collaboration between the two. But Kamal Haasan in an interview with NDTV has refuted those rumours. When asked about Rajinikanth’s entry into politics, he said Thalaiva has his own path and that to compare the two would be vulgar.
On the career front, Kamal awaits the release of Tamil spy thriller “Vishwaroopam 2”.
