Kamal Haasan has announced his plans to adopt a village in every district of Tamil Nadu.
“I am announcing a plan of adopting a village in every district of Tail Nadu… With the vision of making them the best villages in the world,” he said, speaking at the annual Indian conference of the prestigious Harvard University.
He did not rule out an electoral alliance with superstar Rajinikanth if there is some commonality of thoughts and ideas between them and similarities in their manifestos.
But, he quickly referred to the sharp differences between them — on religion and on ‘saffron’, which was interpreted as the BJP.
“I hope Rajini’s colour is not saffron. Alliance with Rajini is unlikely if his colour is saffron,” Haasan said.
In his column in the popular Tamil weekly magazine Ananda Vikatan a few days ago, Haasan had said, “It isn’t like choosing the star cast for films,” stressing that they both will have to see if their policies are compatible.
Rajinikanth’s stock response to similar queries has been, “only time will tell”.
