Kamal Haasan is an actor par excellence, and no one can challenge that. He is one of the most versatile actors in India and is highly respected all over the country. He started his political journey in Tamil Nadu by founding the Makkal Needhi Maiam party. The party contested in 154 seats and has not been able to win in even one place.
Kamal himself got defeated by Vanathi Srinivasan, with a margin of 1500 votes, in the Coimbatore South assembly constituency. Kamal’s party failed to grab the people’s attention despite Kamal vigorously campaigning ahead of the elections.
On the other hand, the DMK has won the Tamil Nadu general elections this time, defeating the AIADMK.
