Nammavar Kamal Haasan is very actively devoting all his time to political and social activism under his party Makkal Needhi Maiam. Kamal went to rural areas near Tamil Nadu and addressed a gram panchayat about the kind of changes he would want to bring in considering he gets the position of chief minister. Kamal will be contesting 2021 Tamil Nadu chief minister elections from his independent party which is a big trail to follow as he wants to run the state at his own terms if he gets the seat.
Any political party would have happily hired him as a candidate considering his massive popularity from the movies but they might not have given him chief minister’s position because they are far more senior leaders in line. Kamal would have had to face years of politics to become the chief minister’s face in an established party that too if the party hits majority button on electoral ballot. Since he has his own party now at least he knows that he is contesting for the big chair so if he wins it then it’s gold all the way though chances of a newly established party is always quite thin.
Rajinikanth would also be contesting the same election for CM’s position and perhaps his fan following is more than Kamal. Both of them started working in the films at around the same time but somehow Kamal was always a second as far as the man of masses is taken into consideration though he was certainly touted as the more versatile actor. Rajini’s entry will be a huge blow to Kamal’s intentions but it would make the elections all that more interesting when two of the biggest stars of Tamil Cinema would be battling it out on the field that perhaps matters more importantly in the eyes of public.
