Actor, director, producer and now a television host Kamal Haasan has been taking on the political leaders of state of Tamil Nadu lately and has been making some strong statements against them. The actor has been very vocal against the political proceedings and has said that the state is filled with corruption more than any other state in India. And recently at a wedding in Coimbatore, Kamal Haasan has urged his fans and citizens of Tamil Nadu to gear up for a march up to the ‘fort’.
“We will carry on with our work now. But we will march towards the fort (Fort St George) when right time comes,” said Kamal Haasan interacting with his fans there. “This is not a wedding ceremony, but inaugural ceremony of our political journey,” Mr. Haasan added further.
Kamal Haasan also added some hard-hitting statements during his speech which might create some ripples in the political circles of Tamil Nadu. “We had allowed looters into the corridors of power after getting bribed for votes. You have committed a mistake by doing that. But we cannot let the political situation remain as it is now, it is our duty to transform it,” Kamal said further.
This probably is for the first time that Kamal Haasan has spoken at a public gathering about the ruling political party in TN and taking them on. He has, however, been active on his social networking page about politics and voicing out his views about the political situation in the state.
