Kamal Haasan, who has confirmed his political journey but has always been vague about the details, said that he will begin his political tour on Republic Day (January 26). Speaking at the Ananda Vikatan Awards in Chennai, the actor said that the details of the tour will be published in his column for the magazine on January 18.
On Thursday, in his column for the magazine, the actor and soon-to-be politician wrote that his political rally has been delayed owing to some ‘meticulous planning’. He wrote:
“It is my wish that the manifesto of my party should outlive me. I believe that political parties should be launched by those who agree that they should outlive them. A political party for one or two generations is like a bypass bridge for a short term. A political party should stand like the Pamban bridge that withstands roaring waves. People know how much time it takes [to launch] such a political party.”
Incidentally, much like his colleague, Rajinikanth, too, has confirmed his political plunge. While he made his official announcement on December 31, 2017, saying that he will bring in spiritual politics to Tamil Nadu, the actor also stated that he would be contesting in all 234 constituencies during the next assembly elections. He launched a website and app called Rajini Mandram where fans could join officially join him.
