Haasan said that both their approach and general intent might be the good of the people but he believesd "there is a certain way in which the good will have to come to the people". "All is not well with Tamil Nadu", he said, slamming a current lot of political class in his state.
"I like equipoise. That's why my site is called Maiam (centre)", he said. Hasaan, who recently announced his foray into electoral politics, said that he will begin with one village and then scale up it to every district of Tamil Nadu. "It is not like choosing a star cast for films".More news: NY attorney general files lawsuit against Weinstein and the Weinstein Co
Noted south Indian actor Kamal Haasan has said that he does not see a political alliance with Rajinikanth in the current circumstances. But, he quickly referred to the stark differences between them - on religion and on "saffron", which was interpreted as Rajinikanth's inclination towards the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party). Haasan has been quite open about his aversion to "saffron", representing the BJP, and while making an address at the famous Harvard University in the USA, hinted that an alliance with Rajinikanth would be unlikely if "his colour" was saffron.
The actor was categorical that if his friend Rajinikanth wants an alliance, then he should either change the "hue" or should "convince his rational mind" that his statement had a different interpretation. But he kept the doors open. He also ruled out a post-poll alliance.More news: Year-old Redmond Gerard grabs first gold for U.S. in slopestyle final
Delivering his keynote address and later participating in an interactive session moderated by journalist Barkha Dutt at the India Conference in the prestigious Harvard University in the US, Kamal was in his usual candid self when he was categorical that he would "rather stand out" and not "somehow sit in the chair" when asked whether he would align with Rajinikanth if he fails to get a majority. Haasan said Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party head Arvind Kejriwal met him in Chennai and offered an alliance with his party. "I don't like to take a detour".
