Kamal Haasan: All Is Not Well With Tamil Nadu

Kamal Hassan talks about the condition of Tamil Nadu and alliance with Rajinikanth

Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan who is U.S., has ended the speculation over his alliance with Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, and said that his alliance with the Rajini is unlikely as of now. He said this at the annual Indian conference of the prestigious Harvard University while addressing. "With the vision of making them the best villages in the world", further adding, "All is not well with Tamil Nadu".

The death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016 created a perceived vacuum in the state's politics, with AIADMK splitting into two factions and later combining, while Opposition DMK chief M Karunanidhi suffered from ill-health issues.

Meanwhile, Haasan, much like Rajinikanth, has launched his website - www.naalainamadhe.maiam.com - in which volunteers who wish to join his campaign can register for it.

The entry of actors Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth into politics has led to a lot of speculations about the course they will take given that the development has come at a time of political instability in the state.

Referring to Rajinikanth's statements about his political entry, he said, "I hope it is not saffron".

In his post-event interaction with the press in Ambattur, Vijayakanth also welcomed the NEET examination and said that it would ensure people can not buy medical seats for lakhs of rupees.

Responding to a question on the so-called love jihad, the actor said, "I think that a new revolution is on its way". "All is not well with Tamil Nadu".

On being asked about the prospect of an alliance with Arvind Kejriwal's AAP, he said he is open to learning from Kejriwal's experience. "I do not know about jihad, but love would triumph hate".
