Alliance with Rajinikanth unlikely if his politics is saffron: Kamal Haasan

Noted south Indian actor Kamal Haasan has said that he does not see a political alliance with Rajinikanth in the current circumstances.

Without ruling out the possibility of future ties, Mr Haasan emphasized "red is not my political complexion".

As all eyes are on veteran actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, both of whom are set to float their political parties soon, DMDK chief Vijayakanth on Sunday said the two stars are his juniors in politics. "I can not see a clear understanding now", Hasaan said when pressed by moderator senior journalist Barkha Dutt on the sharp ideological differences he has with his contemporary. The actor announced during his address as well as on his social media page that his website http://naalainamadhe.

He had reacted in a similar way when the question was posed to him at the launch event of animation film "Kizhakku Africa vil Raju" based on the life of AIADMK founder MGR.

Reiterating similar views, Haasan had said, "Time is a good medicine for everything. Our general intent may be for the good of people, but I believe in a certain way in which good will have to reach the people", the actor said. Hasaan, who recently announced his foray into electoral politics, said that he will begin with one village and then scale up it to every district of Tamil Nadu. He is also likely to reveal the name of his party on the same day. Political observers here were not surprised by Kamal's statement as they said it was a known fact that the two actors can not come together on one platform for many reasons - the main reason being their ideological differences.

He has appealed to the people to support his political journey, saying, "Join hands with me to empower our country and the state". Vijayakanth went on to become the Leader of the Opposition in the state legislative assembly between 2011 and 2016. Jayalalithaa too served the state as the Chief Minister for several years.
