Arvind Kejriwal Kamal Haasan lunch meet fuels political speculations

Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday met Kamal Haasan at his residence after he was received by his daughter Akshara at the airport.

With strong political overtones, the meeting was seen as an attempt by the Aam Aadmi Party to bring the National Award winning actor on its side.

Mr. Kejriwal, who was in Maharashtra for a meditation course till Tuesday, reviewed the AAP government's flagship projects, including the mohalla clinics project.

Is Kamal Joining AAP?:- Padmashri Kamal Haasan is all set for his political entry and after hinting this for months, he revealed the news directly.

The "fruitful meeting" covered issues pertaining to the country and the state and such a dialogue would continue in the future, the Delhi CM said.

The interaction was the second high-profile meeting Haasan had with a political figure in three weeks. But only few like Haasan are ready to stick their "neck out". "We discussed a number of issues including corruption".

The veteran actor said the meeting was more of a learning curve. Kejriwal met the actor at his office in Alwarpet.
