They may make a great photo-op. But Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan are certainly not coming together as political allies.
In fact Rajinikanth, according to well-informed sources, may quit politics even before formally taking to active politics.
A source in the know informs, “While Kamal’s political plans are now midway between ‘probable’ and ‘doable’ Rajinikanth has more or less decided to not go ahead with his political career. He doesn’t know politics. He would rather let his political ideology be reflected in the cinema that he does.”
The source goes on to inform that Rajinikanth’s family is also not keen that he emerge as an active figure in Tamil politics. “There is too much backbiting . Rajini won’t be able to cope. He is too simple and uncorrupted to get into politics. Besides he needs to take care of his health. His frail health may not be able to take the extra stress.”
Kamal Haasan, on the other hand, stands with his foot halfway into politics. He announced the name of his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam earlier this year. He is currently shooting for the sequel to Shankar’s Indian.He has not decided yet whether his party would be contesting the next Lok Sabha elections.
