Chennai: Speculations that Kamal Haasan, the Tamil Megastar, might use the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as the launching pad to start a new inning as politician, were rife after the reports that he has planned a lavish lunch for the party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday.
Back to work after a 10-day Vipassana meditation session in Maharashtra, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will fly to Chennai to meet Kamal Haasan today at his residence in the state capital.
Kamal Haasan has earlier issued a series of political statements, indicating he is set to join politics.
Amid reports that he is likely to float his own political outfit, he had called on Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
After the much publicised meeting, the Tamil Superstar gave ample indications that he may soon join politics, but ruled out any interest in the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) saying "his colour is not saffron".
Interestingly, Kamal Haasan's remarks came amidst rumours that Rajnikanth, another superstar of Tamil industry, is planning to join the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).
Haasan had been vocal against the Tamil Nadu government on the issue of corruption, thus incurring the wrath of several state ministers, who have accused the actor of speaking in general terms and dared him to provide evidence of his charges.
Haasan had also earlier urged his fans to continue questioning the government and calling his fans to be ready to march towards Fort St. George in Chennai, where the Tamil Nadu Assembly is located.
