As the Lok Sabha General Elections kicked off today, all eyes have been on alliances and key party candidates. Down South the two great stalwarts of acting, Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan, have raised eyebrows for their camaraderie ahead of the polls in Tamil Nadu on April 18. Media reports speculated whether the Thalaivar would support Kamal Haasan in the upcoming polls. But, Rajinikanth quashed these rumours and said there was no change in his political stand. 

He also asked people not to "ruin" his friendship with the Makkal Needhi Maiam president Kamal Haasan, a Tamil news channel reported. Rajinikanth had announced earlier that he won't be contesting the Lok Sabha polls. He had added that his aim was to contest the Tamil Nadu assembly election slated to be held in 2021. 

Whereas for Kamal Haasan, his party Makkal Needhi Maiam ("People's Justice Front") has named candidates for the Lok Sabha election, but he is not one of them. The actor has always expressed his views about state politics and never shied away from taking a stand. Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan have been friends since a long time and continue to be despite their decision to enter politics. 

State politics in Tamil Nadu is dominated by AIADMK and DMK. Fans of the actors are elated to witness their political journey and have a huge number of followers rallying behind them. Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has welcomed the BJP's pledge to create a new ministry that will work to interlink rivers.
