It’s confirmed that Indian actor Kamal Haasan will make his foray into politics in Tamil Nadu. It is expected that he will announce his political party on his birthday on November 7. Meanwhile, director Bharathiraja who has worked with Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth in ‘16 Vayathinile’. The movie was a tremendous hit and catapulted all three of them into the limelight. When the director was recently asked about Kamal Haasan and his political intentions by media, he replied, “Kamal Haasan is being provoked to enter the political arena by politicians. He will be a good politician. We will have to wait and see how venomous he is to those who have provoked him.”

In fact, Bharathiraja has already warned politicians earlier about taking on Kamal Haasan. The ‘Tik Tik Tik’ direcvtor has always believed that Kamal Haasan will be a good politician and has the calibre to excel in that field. The Ulaganayagan has also strongly believed that he should be the best in whichever field he is in and currently he is meeting bureaucrats and other politicians to understand the political process. Rajinikanth also wants to throw his hat into the political ring. However, the director doesn’t seem to be too convinced that the Superstar can take on the seasoned politicians at this point. But he did reiterate that Rajini was a wonderful human being and that is something he has echoed constantly through his life.

During the inauguration of Bharathiraja’s ‘Bharathiraja International Institute of Cinema’ in Chennai, Rajinikanth stated, “I like Bharathiraja very much. He likes me as a good person but doesn’t like me as an actor.” The Superstar went on to add, “I could read his face and hear his mind voice. He always wondered how I become such a big actor.”
