Kamal Haasan who is an actor-turned-politician announced on February 21st that he is quitting acting. After his great acting experience, he has finally decided to concentrate on political experience.
He feels that the politics in Tamilnadu is ‘Black’ which is corrupted and diluted. He says he wants to serve this state. In an interview, he said that after the release of the film ‘Vishwaroopam 2’, he made clear of his intentions of joining politics and giving up acting altogether.
“It was like the writer Saadat Hasan Manto where he was so troubled with what was going on that he had to write down his thoughts. Same way, politics interfered with me at every point, prompting me to join it eventually,” says Haasan.
He says that he could manage both an actor and politician simultaneously like MGR but only if was 20 years back. This century is different and his duties are more and need to focus properly. He says that this decision is final.
