J.Anbazhagan DMK MLA of Chepauk - Thiruvallikeni Constituency who is also a Kollywood producer speaks about top stars in Tamil cinema for an exclusive interview to Galatta’s Makkal Adhigaram.
In this interview, he shares about popular star’s political stint recently and his opinion about the same. He continues to say Rajini is not in his mind regarding politics and he doesn’t even have a voice. He also adds he will even produce his movie and not believe his political entry. When asked about Kamal, he states that his worth is only about 3-4% votes and he himself would have realized the same. He also mentions these two stars can only fill Vijayakanth’s place and not anything more. He also further adds these actors see politics as post-retirement plan.
When asked about Rajini his statement was, “This is because he himself doesn’t have clarity about his stand. In first case, he shouldn’t have announced his political entry. I’m watching him from Baasha time, even then he has announced his political entry and he doesn’t abide by it. Even now, it’s been a year since his announcement and there is no further follow to it.” and also mentioned “ As a producer, I’m ready to produce a movie with Rajini in the lead. He is a bankable star.”
Answering the question about Kamal, “Kamal Haasan already joined politics and realized the ground reality, he doesn’t have support among masses. When we discussed his support in our meetings, we came through that he can yield a 3-4% votes and doesn’t hold any major public support.”
Talking about actors entering politics he stated, “They are profitable heroes with 100 crores collection in TN. At this juncture, these actors won’t easily enter into politics leaving money. They won’t join when they have a market.”
His opinion about them, “They are trying to fill the vacuum left by Vijayakanth who had 8% vote bank which subsequently decreased with his decline in health. They can only get hold of Vijayakanth’s vote bank not more than that. Being no.1 in cinema doesn’t mean they have to be no.1 in Tamil Nadu.”
