Political alliance not like casting a star: Haasan


Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan on Thursday said a political alliance is not like selecting actors for a movie and he and Rajinikanth have to think whether they should join hands.

In his weekly column in Tamil magazine Ananda Vikatan, Haasan said he has been facing the question of a pact with Rajinikanth.

“In each person’s mind a separate story is played out. It is the policies of a party that would decide what is good for the people… One cannot play a game with names,” Haasan said.

Rajinikanth too recently announced his decision to float a political party and contest the assembly elections. He also said time will tell whether he and Haasan could tie up.

Haasan said first both of them have to form parties and announce their policies and then see whether their policies sync. And then both of them have to think whether they should join hands.
