Veteran actor Kamal Haasan has already entered the world of politics and is leaving to stone unturned to make sure that he makes an impact. Having previously commented on a host of issues—right from Demonetisation to extremism— the star is now trying to reach out to the people and connect with them. At the same time, he is trying make ideologies clear. As it so happens, yesterday, Haasan visited the Periyar house in Erode and paid tribute to the  leader. He also interacted with those in attendance and made it clear that he is a man of the soil.’

Interestingly, recently . Haasan had lashed out at H Raja for threatening to destroy Periyar’s statue and called it a diversionary tactic.

“H.Raja’s statement about Periyar is very wrong, and it is punishable. The Government has given police protection for the statue. But, I would rather suggest the Police to protect people like Raja, who gave controversial wrong statements like this. We, Tamilians will take care of Periyar and we can protect his statue. I feel all these controversies are being hyped up to divert us from the Cauvery issue (formation of Cauvery Management Board). There has been no update about that formation, and I strongly feel, this might be an act, to divert the people from that. We should focus towards finding solutions for problems, and not create new problems, one by one,” he had added.

On the work front, Haasan currently has Vishwaroopam 2 and Indian 2 in his kitty. Vishwaroopam 2 is a sequel to the 2014 spy-thriller Vishwaroopam and also features actor Andrea Jeremiah in the lead. As far as Indian 2 is concerned, it is a sequel to the classic vigilante drama Indian and will be helmed by maverick director S Shankar.

      True, he raises good points but is a hypocrite when raising issues related to minorities in India.
