Tamil Superstar, Kamal Haasan is all set to bring 'reformatory change' to Indian Politics. After much speculations about the veteran actor joining politics, a confirmation has been hinted from his side.

A few days back, Kamal Haasan had a meeting with Kerala's CM, Pinarayi Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram and reportedly the duo had a long political discussion. Post the meet, he said, "This is a learning experience for me."

Kamal has been very vocal about his political views and confirmed on many occasions about admiring the left parties. In a clear reference, he has once told the reporters, "Left leaders are my heroes, I am certainly not saffron."

After days of keeping his ideas under wrap, in a recent interview with reporter Subhash K Jha of 'The Quint', Haasan admitted his political plans saying, "Yes, I am thinking on those lines, not out of choice but compulsion. Which existent political party can provide me with a platform or an ideology that will match my reformatory goals in politics?"

The 62-year-old actor gave out a clear indication of forming his own political party when he said, "A political party is about an ideology. And I don’t think my goals in politics can match the ideology of any political party." 

Due to the unsteady political scene in Tamil Nadu as of now, it is indeed an ideal time for the actor to enter politics. Moreover, his influence on the South Indian crowd might come in handy.

Kamal didn't promise any swift changes to the people rather he said, "The politics of Tamil Nadu can change and I want to bring about that change, no matter how slow it may be."

Haasan promised to start the "process of change" without any political ambitions. "Don't vote me in and then wait for five years to vote me out. Sack me immediately if I don't deliver," he said.

Kamal has always raised voice against corruption in politics and wanted to bring a steady change in the outlook of politics and this is likely to be his first step towards the cause.
