Even before the official launch, he seems to have found support from Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan. When asked whether he would join hands with actor Rajinikanth, Haasan said that they are ‘just a phone call away.’ “We are just a phone call away. If our ideology is similar and if it would benefit the people we are ready to set aside our ego and co-operate with each other,” the MNM chief was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
