In case you did not know, Haasan has been extremely critical of the AIDMK government and has accused it of indulging in corrupt practices. He has also expressed his opinion on a host of burning issues such as demonetisation and the Padmaavavat debate. While announcing his political tour, he had said that it would help him undersand the needs of the common man.
“I intend to embark on a journey across the state from February 21, 2018, to truly understand as to what the needs of my people are? what is afflicting them? what their aspirations are? Further, this momentous journey of meeting people across Tamil Nadu is neither an act of rebellion nor is it a gathering for glamour,” Haasan had added.
Earlier, while confirming his political ambitions, he had said that he would form his own party as no existing party can do justice to his ideologies.
“Yes I am thinking on those lines — not out of choice, but due to compulsion! Which existing political party can provide me with a platform or an ideology that will match my reformatory goals in politics?” he had told a leading daily.
On the film front, Haasan currently has Vishwaroopam 2 and Indian 2 in his kitty. Vishwaroopam 2 is a sequel to the spy-thriller Vishwaroopam and also has Andrea Jeremiah in the lead. As far as Indian 2 is concerned, it is a sequel to the 1996 release Indian and is being directed by top director S Shankar.
