Veteran director and father of Vijay, S A Chandrasekhar, has said top stars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan should work together in politics. He said this at a concert in Chennai on Sunday night by maestro Ilayaraja to mark the birthday of the Makkal Needhi Maiam founder.
“I am a fan of Rajinikanth. I was waiting for Rajini’s political entry. But Kamal has entered before him. I request Rajini to enter politics soon. Both Rajini and Kamal should work together in politics and do good to people,” he said.
Reacting to him, All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi president and actor R Sarath Kumar, who is an alliance partner of the ruling AIADMK, said, “I would have reacted to SAC’s remarks if this is Assembly. Since this is not Assembly, I don’t want to react to it.”
Since Sarathkumar is currently not a MLA, his comments were criticised by the fans of Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. Earlier, in his address at the event, Rajinikanth heaped laurels on Kamal and said, “Kamal Haasan is one of the greatest actors of Indian cinema. He has achieved so much and is still active.”
