Hope that “Saffron” will not be the colour of Rajnikanth: Kamal Haasan

Actor Kamal Haasan has hoped that Rajnikanth’s political colour will not be “saffron. He has often been questioned about a possible political alliance with superstar Rajinikanth, has said a tie-up seems unlikely as of now and hoped that Rajinikanth’s “colour is not saffron”.

Haasan said in Harvard University on Saturday,”Our approach is different… His (Rajinikanth’s) very first announcements came in a particular hue. I hope it is not saffron”. The actor-politician delivered an address at Harvard where he talked about various issues that plague Tamil Nadu.

He announced about his plan of adopting a village in every district of Tail Nadu. “With the vision of making them the best villages in the world,” Hasaan said in his keynote address at the annual Indian conference of the prestigious Harvard University.

Haasan had recently said that both he and Rajinikanth needed to contemplate if it was necessary for them to join hands and face the election. Haasan said both of them were being asked repeatedly if they would face the polls together and added that he endorsed the view of Rajinikanth in this respect. “Rajini sir, to this question had said that only time will give an answer and I had seconded that view. Truly, only time will answer,” he said in his weekly column in Tamil magazine ‘Ananda Vikatan.’

Haasan, who is set to unveil his political party’s name and go on a political tour on February 21, said both of them should first formally launch their respective political parties. Following this, policies should be spelt out and it needed to be seen if these were compatible, he said. “Hence, it is not a decision that can be taken now… Also, both of us need to ponder if that is necessary,” he said.
