Election Commission urges Kamal Haasan to vote
The Tamil veteran actor, Haasan kicked up quite a storm after he revealed that his name was missing from the voters list.
The statement created quite a controversy but soon the Election Commission tried to end all speculations released a photo of an electoral list featuring his name. “I will not vote as my name is missing from the voters list,” Haasan said during the launch of his new movie Sabash Naidu.
The official Twitter handle of the poll panel also posted a tweet urging the veteran actor to vote as he is 'considered a role model by all'. It is difficult to say whether Kamal will listen to the plea as he is scheduled to be in the United States shooting for Sabash Naidu on the day of voting - May 16.
During 2009 elections, Kamal Haasan had travelled down from Hyderabad to Chennai to cast his votes, however, his name was missing from the voter’s list.
