Veteran actor Kamal Haasan on Wednesday launched his political party, the Makkal Needhi Maiam (People’s Justice Centre), projecting himself as a serious alternative to the Dravidian majors in Tamilnadu.

Explaining where his ideology lay, he said, “People are asking me if I am left or right (in ideology). That’s why we have ‘maiam’ (centre) in our party (name). We will absorb all good things from whichever direction they come.”
