Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan likely to forge alliance in politics?

Chennai: After announcing his foray into politics on Tuesday, actor Kamal Haasan on Thursday said the meaning of the term "Dravidian" should not be restricted to Tamil Nadu alone.

"Only time will tell", he said in reply to questions by reporters whether the two actors, who are long-time friends, will combine together in the political arena.

With the help of an analogy, Haasan made it clear that the Centre should stop taking Tamil Nadu for granted and ignoring the aspirations of its people.

Movie stars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan are drafting plans to build a grassroots cadre having confirmed their formal entry into the political arena. In his last column, Kamal Haasan had hinted that he would like to work with Rajinikanth, who too has said he will soon launch a political party which will contest all 234 assembly constituencies in the next state elections.

The next Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu would be a game-changer, Vishal said.

Asked to react to Rajinikanth's views, Haasan expressed his support for the same saying, "Time is a good medicine for everything". Accordingly the tour will be held in phases.

The actor had on Wednesday said that he would announce his political party name on February 21 and launch his political journey from his home town of Ramanathapuram.

It will mark Haasan's official entry into politics about which he has been making overtures since previous year. Rajinikanth, on the other hand, begun discussions with political advisors and has formed a team to recruit office-bearers in every district. Recalling that for him too Ramanathapuram was the hometown where he was born, Kamal said he felt that he should visit Kalam's residence by creating an opportunity this time round.
