Actor Kamal Haasan confirmed that he will not be attending the national seminar organised by a CPI(M)- think tank in Kozhikode on September 16. The actor took to twitter and said that he is busy with the filming of his reality show Bigg Boss on Saturdays. He also said that he was not asked, and wished good luck for the event.
While the seminar organisers had earlier confirmed to TNM that Kamal Haasan would inaugurate the event on Saturday. Following the actor’s tweet, Director of Keluettan Study and Research Centre, KT Kunhikannan said that star chose to back out as he did not want a controversy.
Kamal Haasan’s decision to stay away from the seminar comes weeks after his meeting with the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, which ignited speculations over his entry into politics. On September 1, Kamal Haasan met with the Chief Minister at his residence in Thiruvananthapuram. While terming his visit “a learning experience”, the actor said “I have been in films for 40 years. I have many colours, but my colour is not saffron.”
