The actor said this was the reason that he was not meeting anyone from the AIADMK.

I am entering politics only because the ruling AIADMK party is bad, that is why I am not meeting any of them: Kamal Haasan said in Chennai.

Veteran Tamil actor Kamal Haasan will kick off his state-wide tour on Wednesday with the launch of his political party and its "guiding principles" in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

The tour will be held in phases. He will begin the journey from Ramanathapuram his hometown and later visit people from the districts of Madurai, Dindigul and Sivagangai.

It will mark Haasan's official entry into politics about which he has been making overtures since last year.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to attend Haasan's Madurai rally.

While announcing his tour earlier this year, Haasan had said he intended to "embark on a journey across the state to truly understand as to what the needs of my people are, what is affecting them, what their aspirations are.... This momentous journey of meeting people across Tamil Nadu is neither an act of rebellion nor is it a gathering for glamour."

Kamal met senior political leaders and well-wishers from different political parties including the Left. He also sought the blessings of DMDK leader, Captain Vijayakanth for his political journey.
