Kamal Haasan’s political game took a new turn Tuesday after spoke to fans and asked them to be ready to march towards fort, in an apparent reference to Fort St. George, an area in Chennai where both the Tamil Nadu Assembly and Secretariat are located.
Speaking at an event in Coimbatore, the actor told a gathering of fans, “People who’ve been fans for the past 37 years… volunteer for the country too. If anyone asks you how long you’ve been in public life, tells them it’s 30 years.”
The last statement was seemingly a retort to certain ministers from the AIADMK front who previously attempted to mock Kamal Haasan by questioning his political experience.
Kamal went ahead and to say that the kind of politics seen in Tamil Nadu right now, should not prevail anymore. His statements were similar to those recently made by Rajnikanth, who said that the political system is corrupt and needs a overhaul.
“You took money and gave your vote without realizing that you are being paid from the money that belonged to you in the first place. You have sold 5 years for just 500 and 1000 rupees”, Kamal also said, asking his fans to help protect Tamil Nadu for future generations.
Considering the internal fight for power that is currently going within the AIADMK, Kamal’s fiery speech on Tuesday is likely to rattle politicians in the party.
