Popular Tamil actor and director Kamal Haasan said on Sunday, “People say I will announce my party's name. For naming a child we must have one first. Should I still say if I'll enter politics?”
“If you keep putting people, who speak truth, behind bars, the number of jails will not be enough to keep them,” added Haasan.
This comes amid strong speculations that Hassan would either be joining a certain political party or float one of his own. Recently, Haasan has made several comments about the ongoing political turmoil in Tamil Nadu.
He had said that he wants a better Tamil Nadu, and if the tools that must help achieve that, “the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) and other political parties are blunt, we must find others”.
Hassan had also met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in September. After the meeting, the actor expressed happiness over the meeting. “I am very happy that he (Arvind Kejriwal) is here, have discussed issues including corruption,” Haasan had said.
“Terrorism is different from extremism. I don't preach my ideology to others. I am a rationalist,” added Haasan.
In his column published in Tamil Magazine Ananda Vikat Hassan wrote, “Earlier, the right-wing Hindu groups would not indulge in violence. They used to hold dialogues with opponents but now they resort to violence. The right-wing groups cannot deny Hindu terrorism in their camps as well.
