Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has already announced that his political party would contest on all 234 seats in the next assembly elections. Calling me a Tamilian is also an identity. Haasan had recently also said that he and Rajinikanth needed to contemplate if it was necessary for them to join hands and face the election, while Rajinikanth, who announced his political entry on December 31 past year, told the media that only time would tell if he would join hands with Haasan during their political journey. The film star quoted Mahatma Gandhi's idea of a self-reliant and self-sustainable village.
Speaking at Harvard University's India Conference in Boston early on Sunday, he said an alliance with fellow actor Rajinikanth was unlikely.With the launch of his political party less than two weeks away, Kamal lashed out at the "mediocrity" that the "global village" of Tamil Nadu had been subjected to. "I can not see a clear understanding now", Hasaan said when pressed by moderator senior journalist Barkha Dutt on the sharp ideological differences he has with his contemporary.
Referring to Rajinikanth's statements about his political entry, he said, "I hope it is not saffron". But he kept the doors open. "I second it." Both the actors-turned-politicians shared the stage at the event raising speculations over a possible alliance. He, however, ruled out a post-poll alliance. "If there is no majority, it's the people's verdict". Responding to a question on love jihad, the actor said, "I think that a new revolution is on its way". Haasan said Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party head Arvind Kejriwal met him in Chennai and offered an alliance with his party.
"My true goal today is to challenge the status quo and mediocrity that has plagued Tamil Nadu".
