Kamal Hassan Exclusive Interview

A year into his political venture, he is all set to face the Lok Sabha elections with a set of candidates he claims are perfect. Answering the anchor's question for rolling out the names later than expected, he said it is important to select the "right" people than to announce on the "right" date. 

When asked about the involvement of his family, he said that he considers the whole Tamil Nadu as his family and it is important for a person to have family around to be happy and for solace.

The actor-turned-politician said that DMK has more actors than his party and that MK Stalin's son, actor Udayanidhi, goes for vote campaign when asked about the presence of actors in important positions in his party.

Speaking about other parties, he said Communists and he share the same ideology and when the time is right he expects they would join hands with him.

He spoke about how the basic needs of people are not met yet and that politicians don't have the sensibility to care for the people. And he also mentioned that the people who left his party made mistakes.

While answering the question about how the democracy is missing in the party, he denied it but when answering about Mahendran's involvement in controlling the party he said people must control a party according to their position; however, he added that it is more regulating than controlling.

He also informed that he has signed a movie but might not venture into acting entirely if public service becomes full time. "I'll have to say sorry, to millions of fans who kept me in this position," he says.

He also brought up DMK's Treasurer Durai Murugan and spoke about how people shouldn't prefer NOTA and see the alternative.

When talking about the system change that happened in the 1960s, the entry of Dravidian parties, he says the change is necessary now and also spoke about his lack of protests unlike the Dravidian parties.

"This will be the symbol that is going to change Tamil Nadu. This is the torch we are going to carry," he says while talking about his symbol. He also remarked about the symbol issue that other parties faced.
