I am going to enter politics, says Tamil actor Vishal

In politically sensitive Tamil Nadu, Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan attend launch of MGR's dream project Kizhakku Africavil

On Wednesday, when both of them shared the dais at a function in Chennai, they did not rule out forming an alliance in the future.

Rajnikanth's presence at the event holds importance since it comes at a time when he is being seen as the next MGR in the making.

Asked about his political tour commencing on February 21, Haasan said, "I want people to realise their strength and that is the strength of the nation as well".

Actor Kamal Haasan has said that entire south India must unite under Dravidian identity so that their voice is more strong and heard clearly by the Centre.

The animation film "Kizhakku Africavil Raju' will have the digitally created MGR in the lead role and will begin production from March this year".

This, he said, is being planned and executed in phases and over a period of time.

The DMK, the main opposition party in the state, had initially heavily relied on the 'Dravidian theme.' He also hit out at the Centre over what he claimed apportionment of tax revenue among states.

He extended his greetings to Haasan on announcing his political entry. Join hands with me to empower our country and state.

Haasan, who is also known as Ulaganayagan (world leader) among his fans, said the unity of the southern states will enable them to negotiate on their terms with the Centre.

Haasan addressed his aspirations in a statement, that was given on Tuesday, "At the commencement of the journey, I intend to announce the name of my political party along with the guiding principles we intend to live by", it stated. Kamal said he meant to launch his political tour of Tamil Nadu on February 21 from the residence of late President APJ Abdul Kalam at Ramanathapuram, which is also the hometown of the actor.

"Dravidian is not related to Tamilnadu alone". "Only time will tell", he said in reply to questions by reporters whether the two actors, who are long-time friends, will combine together in the political arena.
