CAMBRIDGE: Ace actor Kamal Haasan said that a tie-up with another Tamil movie star Rajinikanth seems unlikely as of now as the latter has a “hue of saffron” in his politics, alluding that the veteran actor is inclined towards the BJP.

“There is a hue of saffron in Rajni’s politics. If that doesn’t change, then I don’t see an alliance with him,” said Haasan, during the launch of his website, naalainamadhe.maiam.com, at Harvard University.

“My politics will definitely not be saffron,” said Hassan, who recently announced his foray into electoral politics.

He, however, mentioned that both of them are good friends, but “politics is different.”

Just before pointing out the stark differences between their politics, Hassan said if there is some commonality of thoughts and ideas between them and in the manifestos of the two political parties, an alliance may be on the cards.

“I cannot see a clear understanding now,” Hasaan went on to add when pressed by moderator senior journalist Barkha Dutt on the sharp ideological differences he has with his contemporary.

“If necessary (I will hold hands with others),” Haasan said.

He, however, ruled out a post-poll alliance.

“If there is no majority, it’s the people’s verdict. Then I would not have to sit but stand and wait for the next time,” he said indicating that he would prefer to be in the Opposition if his party does not get a majority.

Haasan also said, the reason for starting his own party is that he does not want to work with any of the existing parties.

Hasaan said Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party head Arvind Kejriwal met him in Chennai and offered an alliance with his party.

“I intend to take it (the experience) not only from Kejriwal but from others as well,” he said.

Earlier, in his key note address, Hasaan rued that there is status quo and mediocrity in Tamil Nadu.

Confident of raising funds for the elections, Haasan called upon the Tamil community across the world to come up with ideas.

Speaking about the website, the actor said that it has been designed in a manner wherein people from all sections can participate.

“People can register themselves under the topics of health, education, environment, agriculture, finance and many more sectors,” he added.

Lamenting that all is not well with his home state, the actor-turned-politician announced his plans to adopt a village in every district of Tamil Nadu.

“I am announcing a plan of adopting a village in every district of Tamil Nadu... With the vision of making them the best villages in the world,” Hasaan said in his key note address at the annual Indian conference of the Harvard University.

“All is not well with Tamil Nadu,” he said, slamming the current lot of political class in his state.

Hasaan said that he will begin with one village and then scale up it to every district of Tamil Nadu.

The film star quoted Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of a self- reliant and self-sustainable village.

Responding to a question on love jihad, the actor said, “I think that a new revolution is on its way. I do not know about jihad, but love would triumph hate.”
