Day before party launch, Kamal Haasan meets Naam Tamilar Katchi leader Seeman

Chennai: Kamal Hassan, who's all set to launch his political party Wednesday, met Naam Tamilar Katchi chief coordinator Seeman earlier today.

The meeting took place at Hassan's home in Chennai.

Kamal Haasan who begins his political innings on February 21, has reportedly been meeting several top political leaders and well-wishers, inviting them for the launch tomorrow.

On Monday, Haasan met Krishnasaamy Bhagyaraj and D Rajendran.

Earlier today, Haasan claimed that his entry into politics was motivated by AIADMK's poor governance.

“I am entering politics only because the ruling AIADMK party is bad. That is why I am not meeting any of them,” said the veteran actor in Chennai, reported ANI.

Naam Tamilar Katchi, a Tamil nationalist party, opposes Dravidian politics.

Earlier, Haasan claimed that his Dravidian brand of politics will succeed.

"You will know when I make it a success," he told reporters when asked about the presence of Dravidian parties in Tamil Nadu and how he could succeed with the same ideology.

The top actor has time and again expressed his appreciation of the Dravidian ideology.

Last month, he had batted for unity among Southern states under the "Dravidian" tag to leverage ties with the Centre.

"It (Dravidian) is our identity, and it will give the southern states a leverage with the Centre," the actor had said.

Yesterday, the veteran actor had visited DMK President M Karunanidhi and superstar Rajinikanth, saying he was calling on those "whom I like" before the formal launch of his party.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also expected to attend the party launch.
