Political party announcement not at media's prodding: Kamal”

Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan plans to launch his political party on his 63 birth day on November 7. I am going to make an announcement on November 7 about a "mode" through which I will communicate with them without any hindrance. He said that he can not make announcements based on media pressure.

"I understand that there is an army of youngsters waiting out there". The requirement and duty for me to coordinate them has come. "If it is possible for me it is possible for you as well", he said before suggesting about the works underway for enhancing communication between himself, his fans and the people.

He also said the new communication channel will be aimed at training people and organising workshops that will make future plans. He claimed that many organisations were ready to work with him, and pointed out a group named Arappor Iyakkam which works against graft and hailed it for its contribution. "Announcements on these will be made on November 7", he added.

Chennai: The Madras High Court has given the nod to the police to file a case against actor Kamal Haasan if prima facie offence is made out over his tweet expressing doubt over the effectiveness of Nilavembu (Andrographis paniculata) concoction in curing dengue.

Over the last few months, Haasan has been very vocal about the current state of politics in Tamil Nadu and has held talks with Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He had recently extended support to the crew of Tamil film "Mersal", starring Vijay, which had BJP fuming at some mocking references to Goods and Services Tax (GST) rolled out by the NDA government.
