Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan to be allies? This is what Thalaiva has to say
Speculation has been rife over an alliance between the two actors-turned-politicians.
CHENNAI: Tamil superstars Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan have been repeatedly facing questions over whether the two stalwarts will be joining hands in politics. Keeping the suspense alive, Rajinikanth on Thursday said: "Only time will answer this question."
This is not the first time that the actor gave this answer. He had reacted in a similar way when the question was posed to him at the launch event of animation film "Kizhakku Africa vil Raju" based on the life of AIADMK founder MGR. He had then said: "Let us see in due course of time."
Reiterating similar views, Haasan had said, "Time is a good medicine for everything. I second it." Both the actors-turned-politicians shared the stage at the event raising speculations over a possible alliance.
Kamal will start touring Tamil Nadu, beginning with his hometown of Ramanathapuram, on February 21. He is also likely to reveal the name of his party on the same day. Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has already announced that his political party would contest on all 234 seats in the next assembly elections.
Rajinikanth and Hassan recently started their political journey in a state that has had a rich history of cinema marrying politics. MG Ramachandran not only floated the AIADMK after walking out of the M Karunanidhi-led DMK, but also went on to become the state chief minister. Jayalalithaa too served the state as the Chief Minister for several years.
