The hotly contested RK Nagar poll just got a celluloid twist with actor Vishal throwing his hat in the ring and how!

With the election set to be conducted on December 21, Vishal has started with the legwork by conducting review meetings with representatives of the prestigious seat that fell vacant after late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s demise.

The actor, who wishes to be seen as a people’s politician than one with big political ambitions, said, “I want to be the voice of RK Nagar. I want to be the representative of the people and I’m not going to be a full-time politician. I have no long-term plan. It is just a gut feeling and I want to contest the election.”

Vishal said he draws inspiration from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and late President, APJ Abdul Kalam.

He added, “I look up to these two people. I haven’t met Arvind Kejriwal but he is a people's leader. I’m not going to be a politician and will remain a commoner.”

The actor made the surprise announcement on Saturday. Besides opposition DMK, ruling AIADMK's E Madhusudhanan and the party's sidelined leader TTV Dinakaran are contesting for the prestigious seat. For More Info
