Veteran actor Kamal Haasan has of late been making several hard-hitting statements about the political situation in Tamil Nadu. And, as expected, this has led to speculation of him entering politics in the near future. Now, it seems that the National award winner may indeed be ready to venture into the world of politics.
According to a leading website, Haasan could float a new party pretty soon. In fact, an official announcement about this could be made this Vijayadashami or Gandhi Jayanti. Confirming this, a source said that he has already started the groundwork and an announcement is indeed on the cards.
“Preparations to float a political party is in progress and the announcement is likely in a few days. Vijayadashami or Gandhi Jayanthi may be considered appropriate to make the announcement. He is yet to share the final details with leaders of his fans’ groups but the upcoming local body elections have made it a necessity for him to step in,” added the source.
Speaking on the issue, another source said that Haasan feels this is the right time to enter politics as there is a vacuum in the state.
“This is the crucial time to enter. He thinks that there is a political vacuum in Tamil Nadu. He is overwhelmed by the response from the public on his recent statements taking on politicians in the state. He is busy meeting key faces of his fans’ groups besides sharing his ideas and draft papers for the new party with people whom he respects, added the source.
Well, this is pretty much a wait and watch situation and we wish Haasan the very best for whatever he plans to do in the near future.
