Aam Aadmi Party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is currently meeting with veteran actor Kamal Haasan in Chennai. The two are expected to have “political discussions”, according to a member of AAP — an indication that the veteran actor may soon join politics either by floating his own political outfit or join Kejriwal’s AAP.
Haasan, of late, has been very active politically — targeting the ruling AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu, meeting DMK leader MK Stalin and Rajinikanth, adding that he was open to meeting with anyone in the field of politics. He had also, earlier this year, congratulated CPI(M)-led LDF government in Kerala for “good governance” on its first anniversary.
