Ulaganayan Kamal Haasan needs no introduction. He is a famous actor, director, scriptwriter, producer, playback singer, lyricist, choreographer, dancer, philanthropist and now, he has evolved into a politician.

Beginning his career at the age of 4, Kamal has stood the test of time and survived in the cinema industry for over five decades - a feat his fellow actors and actresses have failed to achieve.

We know Kamal as a versatile actor who can ace any role given to him, a person who will work hard to bring the given character to life with such dedication and determination. That's what we love the most about him.

We have seen how Kamal grew on-screen. He was 4 years old when he made his first film appearance in 1960's Kalathur Kannama, and he was last seen in Vishwaroopam 2 in 2018, aged 64. His next project is Indian 2 by S Shankar.

After spending a whopping 60 years in the cinefield, Kamal finally stepped into politics by creating his own political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam, in 2018.

It's nothing new for movie actors/actress to step into politics in India. Some of Tamil Nadu's prominent Chief Ministers begin their journeys from the movie industry. Among them were MGR, Jeyalalitha and Karunanithi who ended up ruling for many years.

Kamal and Super Star Rajnikanth were eventually expected to don the political mantle, but Kamal's decision to finally jump into the political arena suprised many. Even Kamal once remarked that he should got into politics earlier.

Now the question that's going on in our mind, will Kamal be able to achieve the level of success he gained in the cinefield, in politics as well?

Kamal's approach to politics is slightly different than his counterparts who previously did politics. Instead of following a Dravidian ideology, or spiritual path, as done by his predecessors or Rajnikanth respectively, Kamal decided to concentrate his ideology on the people's needs, in line with his party name.

Ulaganayagan is fully capable of taking the political discourse to the next level, and he even seized the opportunity of being the Bigg Boss reality show host, to seed his political ideas among the viewers.

We have relished watching Kamal's talents on the silver screen for the last 60 years, now it's time to experience his political excellence in real life.
