Chennai: Kamal Haasan on Sunday said that the first step of his political plunge will be the launch of a mobile software app on November 7 - his 63rd birthday.

At a function to mark the 39th anniversary of his fan/welfare club, the actor said that the political party launch will happen in a calm manner.

Haasan said his fans would contribute funds for the political party and the mobile app will facilitate keeping proper accounts of funds collected.

According to him, there is no shame in stretching out one`s hands for the welfare of the people and if only the rich pay their taxes properly, the country would be on the right path.

Kamal said November 7 is a day not to cut a cake and celebrate but a day to cut canals, obliquely referring to the flooding of several localities in the city due to recent rains.

The actor added natural disasters does not differentiate between rich and poor and all should be ready to take preventive measures then acting after the loss of dear ones.

According to him, suppression has become part of politics and it is not important how many people are threatening you, but what is important is what you are going to do, IANS reported.

Meanwhile, a case was filed against veteran film actor Kamal Haasan in a court in Varanasi on November 03 for his comments on 'Hindu terror'.

The case has been filed under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) that pertain to defamation, attempt to cause offence, intent to hurt religious feelings and to incite communal disharmony.

In an article in a Tamil magazine that came into public domain on Thursday, the film actor has observed that "Hindu right-wing groups have unprecedentedly started indulging in acts of violence". 

Haasan`s remark drew flak from various quarters, especially the BJP and RSS.
