It’s Party Time , But Is Kamal Haasan Really Quitting Film? (Not Really)
It’s ‘party’ time for Kamal Haasan, yet another actor to swear he will clean the body-politic with the broom of his idealism.
Lofty aspiration to change the country’s political system and free it of corruption notwithstanding, it is very unlikely , in fact impossible, that Kamal Haasan would quit films, as he threatens to do. There is no reason for him to give up the very medium that has given him the platform to stand up there with such tall political convictions.
Far from forsaking films Kamal Haasan is actually going to use his cinema to propagate his political ideology.In the forthcoming sequel to Shankar’s 1996 hit Indian, the Nirav Modi scam will be written in.
“Indian was about eradicating corruption. 22 years later the subject has become even more topical. The Nirav Modi scam will definitely feature in Indian 2. There will be an attempt to incorporate Kamal Haasan’s political ideology in all his future films. He is definitely not giving up films. It would be like cutting the branch on which he sits.”
