Disillusioned with politics, Kamal Haasan returns ‘home’!

There is a very popular phrase for those who return empty-handed from somewhere chasing beautiful dreams: return home. This sentence is absolutely correct about Kamal Haasan, one of the best actors in Indian cinema. Where did he leave home to become a politician, but is now seen returning to the movie screen?

Before the recent assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, Kamal Haasan had big dreams in politics. He felt that, like ancient Tamil Nadu film personalities, he would make great charisma in politics. He received a crushing disappointment. He couldn’t even save his own seat. While in recent years his political activism had increased a lot. At first, he opened a front against Tamil Nadu and the central government, raised many questions, and during this time indicated that he became a political force by forming an organization called Makkal Nidhi Mayimaya.

He was very active until the elections. The crowds were also gathering at their meetings. He also decided to participate in the elections and chose the constituency of Coimbatore. Kamal Haasan may not have achieved any great goals, but a remarkable performance was expected. Despite being a star candidate, he was also defeated at the hands of the BJP candidate and all his dreams were frustrated. Before him in all the southern states, many great stars took the political path. But is it hard to remember that any star on Haasan’s level failed in this way?
