Will definitely start a political party, Kamal Haasan
Actor Kamal Haasan on Sunday said that he will launch a political party soon.
"I will surely start a party and enter politics," said Kamal during a function to mark the 39th anniversary of his welfare association at Kelambakkam near Chennai.
The actor said he would take the first step towards the launch of his party by dedicating a mobile app to his fans on occasion of his birthday on November 7. The mobile app will be used to keep account of funds the actor receives from fans.
The actor also hit back at detractors , saying that jail or murder is the fate meant for those who speak out against the present establishment.
"If we question them, they call us anti-nationals and want us jailed. Now since there is no space in jails they want to shoot us and kill us," he said.
"Terrorism is different from extremism. I don't preach my ideology to others. I am a rationalist," he added.
Referring to the statement made by Haasan on Thursday in a column in weekly magazine Vikatan, Mahasabha vice president Ashok Sharma said these people accused the followers of Hinduism of Hindu terror only to "push their own biased communal agenda".
"There is no other way to handle people like Kamal Haasan but to either hang them or shoot them dead," he said.
Members of the Mahasabha have also announced to boycott all films of the 62-year-old actor and all actors from his family, including his daughter Shruti Haasan, who acts in Hindi as well as Tamil films.
