Pinarayi Vijayan is my guiding light in politics: Kamal Haasan
Chennai: Actor Kamal Haasan, who recently announced his intent is to enter politics, said Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is his guiding light in politics.
In his weekly column in the Tamil magazine Ananda Vikatan, Kamal said Pinarayi Vijayan was the first political leader to extend support to his decision to enter politics.
It was Pinarayi who cleared his political doubts, Kamal wrote. "I had talks with other political leaders; not to ask them to join my party, but to learn from their experience in the field," the actor said.
Kamal, who visited Kerala in September last year, had met the CM. He had also visited Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
