Kamal Haasan is going to announce the name of his political party on February 1 2018. He is likely to make an announcement at Ramanathapuram, and will be beginning a tour that will also involve Madurai, Dindigul and Sivaganga districts. Ramanathapuram is his hometown. Haasan addressed his aspirations in a statement, that was given on Tuesday, “At the commencement of the journey, I intend to announce the name of my political party along with the guiding principles we intend to live by,” it stated.
“At the commencement of the journey, I intend to announce the name of my political party along with the guiding principles we intend to live by.” Some of the excerpts from the statement are: “However, for this to happen, my thoughts and actions need to collectively resonate with people,” he said, adding that through the tour, he wanted to familiarise himself with people’s concerns. To truly understand as to what the needs of my people are, what is afflicting them, what their aspirations are?” he said. The tour was “neither an act of rebellion nor a gathering for glamour. This journey is intended towards that goal. I begin this journey with your support. Join hands with me to empower our country and state. I will see you soon.”
There have also been reports that Kamal could form an alliance with another influential actor, Rajinikanth, who announced his entry in the politics last year. If any kind of alliance does indeed happen between the two, it could prove very strengthening to their parties, while a considerable threat to everyone else. Both of the actors are revered in the south, and have immense clout over the public. They could easily get votes based on their own fanbase alone.
