Pinarayi Vijayan is my political advisor: Kamal Haasan


Kamal Haasan had met Pinrayi Vijayan in September 2017 as part of his "journey of learning".

"Yes for sure, he is not talking about it. let him clarify", Jayakumar said when asked whether Rajinikanth should clarify his stand on the Cauvery issue.

"Is there any chance of Rajini and Kamal coming together to face elections - this is the question that is thrown at us nearly all the time".

Referring to his remarks that "system is rotten" and whether it referred to Tamil Nadu or India, he said "first of all, in Tamil Nadu you have to correct it". He also said time will tell whether he and Haasan could tie up.

Writing in his weekly column in the Tamil magazine Ananda Vikatan, Haasan has said that Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan clears all his political doubts.

Reconfirming his entry into politics, Kamal said he was ready to welcome righteous people, who are sidelined in existing political parties, to his fold but is quite cautious in selecting them. Only time can answer that. Kamal is expected to announce the name of his new political party on February 21.

"Hence, it is not a decision that can be taken now..." It is also being said that he is looking for clean energy solutions for Tamil Nadu and has interacted with KR Sridhar, who is the Founder and CEO of Bloom Energy. "In fact, both of us have to think on whether to have a political alliance and whether our (different) policies would enable that".

On 19 May previous year, Rajinikanth had said that "Tamilnadu has good leaders, the system however is rotten".

The entry of the two top Tamil film stars comes against the backdrop of a perceived vacuum in Tamil Nadu politics after former chief minister J Jayalalithaa's death in 2016 and the ill-health of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam chief M Karunanidhi for over a year following which he was inactive in politics.
