Kamal Haasan, who has kept everybody on tenterhooks with his announcement that he is joining politics, said that he is not averse to joining any political party, provided that the party works for the betterment of Tamil Nadu.

The superstar has met the heads of almost every political be it MK Stalin of DMK or Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party.

In a recent interview with the Times of India, the actor said that he is willing to even join the BJP if it helps Tamil Nadu.

“The BJP is going deep right and that distresses me,” he said. “But if there is a common minimum programme that will benefit people, I am OK with it (joining hands),” TOI quoted Kamal saying.

Kamal Haasan has been vehemently attacking the AIADMK government and basing corruption charges against them.

In a talk show, Kamal had said that his motto was 'Makkal First' (Makkal means people) and he will get close to anybody who is people-centric.

However, this is not the first time Kamal has talked about joining hands with the BJP.

In a conversation on India Today, Haasan also spoke about Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying ideologies do not matter for the actor as long as they are good for the people of Tamil Nadu. “Ideologies do not matter to me as long as they are good for the people of Tamil Nadu. I have an ideology. I am not going to deter from it. Definitely not for power and money. We have to be united with all the diverse ideologies and beliefs we have in this country,” he had said when asked about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He had also called on Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram sparking rumours that he is going the CPI(M) way.

“Nothing is an untouchable in politics,” believes Kamal. It is only a matter of time before he announces which party he will join. Or if he will start his own political party.
