The meeting that lasted nearly an hour took place at Gandhi's residence. "We did discuss politics but not the way you think," Haasan told reporters after the meeting which he initially described as a courtesy call.

To a question whether an alliance between his party and the Congress in Tamil Nadu was discussed, he said: "We did not discuss that."

Earlier in the day, Haasan met Election Commission officials and expressed confidence that the process of registration of his political party will be done in around a week's time.
