Veteran actor Kamal Haasan has said that he wants to start the process of “change” in Tamil Nadu politics, dropping biggest ever hint on joining politics. “The politics of Tamil Nadu can change and I want to bring about that change, no matter how slow it may be,” the actor told The Quint.
The 62-year-old said he is not promising swift remedies, “but I promise to start the process of change,” he said. “Don’t vote me in and then wait for five years to vote me out. Sack me immediately if I don’t deliver,” he said.
The actor hinted that corruption in politics is something he won’t tolerate. “Either I go or corruption in politics goes. We can’t have both,” he said. However, he said no existing political party matches his ideology. “A political party is about an ideology. And I don’t think my goals in politics can match the ideology of any political party,” he said.
Haasan is believed to be in touch with CPM general secretary, Sitaram Yechury. The actor also met Kerala chief minister, Pinarayi Vijayan recently. “I can tell you one thing, my colour is definitely not saffron. Most of the leftists are my heroes,” Haasan had said after his meeting with Vijayan.
