At the press conference for the same event when he was asked about his views on his long-time friend and contemporary superstar Rajinikanth's supposed intent to enter politics, he chose to remain silent and not divulge any opinions.

Mid-day reports that on being asked Rajinikanth's political plunge, he said, "We need to organise a separate press meet to talk about it."

However, The Indian Express quotes him on being asked the same question: "Given the current political scenario in Tamil Nadu, I would say no one should enter politics. Not just Rajinikanth or any other actor. Any rational person will not do that.”

When the actor was asked about opining on Rajinikanth's view of the system being "corrupt", he said, "What he has said is neither wrong nor different. It is a allegation made by many people and he has just echoed that," reports the newspaper.

The actor was also asked about his plans to enter politics. But he sided the question with a subtle wit and replied saying that he had come to politics long time ago when he had voted at the age of 21, reports NDTV.

He also indicated that he was open with the idea of non-indigenous people from other States being elected as the Chief Minister in Tamil Nadu.

Kamal Haasan's show Big Boss would be telecast on 25 June on Star Vijay. The actor also tweeted the trailer of the show on 26 May.
