In his keynote address at the India Conference 2018 at the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School on Saturday, Haasan clarified that he and Rajinikanth are good friends, but that politics a different space.

Haasan said that on February 21, the day he is slated to launch his party from Ramanathapu-ram, he will also announce a plan to adopt a village from every district in Tamil Nadu. Calling me a Tamilian is also an identity.

Haasan, who had recently announced his foray into the electoral politics, said that his "true objective today is to challenge the status quo and mediocrity in politics, that is plaguing the state of Tamil Nadu". "It is not like choosing a star cast for films". "My true objective today is to challenge the status quo and the mediocrity in politics that is plaguing the State", he said.

"If this is the route he (Rajini) is going to take and if the hue he is going to acquire is to be saffron, then I can't see a clear understanding".
