Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will attend the launch of Haasan’s political party. The Aam Aadmi Party chief is likely to address the meeting, sources close to Haasan said. “Kejriwal will attend the evening public meeting in Madurai tomorrow,” they added.
Kejriwal had called on Haasan in Chennai in September 2017, when the award-winning actor had started dropping hints of taking the political plunge.
Kejriwal had then said it was “important at this point when the country is facing strong forces of corruption and communalism, all like minded people should talk to each other on these issues and work in tandem.”
Even actor-director and founder of pro-Tamil outfit Naam Thamizhar Katchi, Seeman called on the actor and wished Haasan success in his political journey.
