Superstar Kamal Hassan, who confirmed recently that he is considering political career, is set to meet Aam Admi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Chennai. The question is what is on the plate? The two personalities will have closed-door “political discussions” at the actor’s office in Chennai. It need be recalled that Kamal Haasan had last met the AAP chief in 2015 to discuss a film shoot in Delhi.
CM Kejriwal will travel with four other AAP leaders and return by the same evening. “The current state of national politics will be discussed,” a source close to the Chief Minister said, adding that the two have been in touch over the past two years and share a “mutual respect”.
This is the second Chief Minister that the 67-year-old actor is meeting after Kerala’s Pinarayi Vijayan. At a meet organized by The Hindu Tamil last week, the actor had said: “Yes I met Pinarayi and I may meet a few other Chief Ministers. This is political tourism.”
Kamal Haasan, currently the host of the Tamil version of Bigg Boss, has made it increasingly clear in recent months that his political plunge is on the cards, unlike the more ambiguous will-he-won’t-he statements of the other superstar, Rajinikanth.
He has often posted acerbic tweets commenting on the internal churning and power struggle in Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK. He also attended a grand event organised by the opposition DMK last month.
