Actor and aspiring politician Kamal Haasan met DMDK Chief Vijayakanth at the party office today. Speaking to the media after the meeting, Kamal Haasan said he was paying yet another courtesy call as it had been a while since the two had last met. “He [Vijayakanth] once said in an interview that I may be his senior in cinema, but he’s my senior in politics. I just wanted to check on him before beginning my tour.”
