What exactly is on Kejriwal’s agenda in meet with Haasan has not been revealed by AAP as yet, but the party is looking at expanding its base to South India too.

Haasan is known for expressing his views on matters pertaining to common public interest. Last month, the actor fuelled speculation about his expected political plunge when he attended an event organised by the DMK party in Chennai. The Delhi CM is also scheduled to visit a Tamil Nadu government-run skill development centre in Chennai. Haasan has also expressed his views on the current political condition of the state. Recently, Kamal Haasan had said that MLAs should be covered under the “no work no pay” formula.

Haasan’s comments had come in the wake of a section of government employees and teachers striking work, with the Madras High Court pulling up the teachers for doing so. “No work no pay only for Govt. Employees?. How about horse trading politicians languishing in resorts?,” the actor said in a tweet without naming anyone. “The honourable court warns teachers on strike. I beseech the court to issue similar warnings to those MLAs who desist from attending work,” he had said. Hasaan’s proactiveness on social issues is being perceived as his intent of joining politics. It remains to be seen whether the politician will join any party or not.
