In his remarks, the Actor outlined his vision for a progressive, secular, and corrupt-free administration. He declared that, given the nature of politics nowadays, he wanted to bring people together rather than split them on the basis of religion and caste lines.

“I am determined to work towards a government that is corruption-free, progressive, and secular, which doesn’t divide people based on religion and caste. Everywhere you look, corruption is evident,” he said.

list of film personalities entering politics

Joining the list of film personalities entering politics, the 49-year-old actor has become the latest figure from the Tamil film industry to step into the political arena. Notable figures from the South include former Chief Ministers M.G. Ramachandran and J. Jayalalithaa, both having a background in acting, while M. Karunanidhi, who also served as CM, was a screenplay writer.

While M.G. Ramachandran, known by his initials MGR, founded the AIADMK, Jayalalithaa was a prominent member of the party. Meanwhile, Karunanidhi, the DMK’s current leader, played a significant role in state politics. The DMK and AIADMK are the two major political parties in Tamil Nadu. Vijayakanth, the founder of DMDK, was an actor before entering politics and passed away in December last year.

Recently, superstar Kamal Haasan established the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) in February 2018. Haasan joined the group of performers who became politicians by entering the political sphere in an effort to improve the political system.
