"My films were different from my peers and I want to be different in politics too", he said.

Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan spoke about his dream of creating a "corruption-free Tamil Nadu" and has made it clear that any political alliance with superstar Rajinikanth is unlikely if his colour is "saffron", during his speech at the Harvard University on Saturday. I am trying to make a difference to my State.

"If necessary (I will hold hands with others)", Haasan said, noting that this is unlikely to be the case.

When the moderator, journalist Barkha Dutt, asked whether Rajinikanth's politics goes against his left leanings, Haasan, a self-proclaimed rationalist, said he did not lean on any side. This is one of the integral parts of his manifesto that will be released on February 21. It can't be an alliance of lies or deceit. Haasan had recently also said that he and Rajinikanth needed to contemplate if it was necessary for them to join hands and face the election, while Rajinikanth, who announced his political entry on December 31 a year ago, told the media that only time would tell if he would join hands with Haasan during their political journey.

Kamal Haasan is all set to announce the name of his political party on February 21st. Alluding to the notion that Rajinikanth, who like himself has announced his foray into politics recently, has an inclination towards the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Haasan vouched that saffron isn't the colour of his politics. "We will have to meet eye-to-eye on every point", Mr. Haasan said. "With the vision of making them the best villages in the world". "I seek ideas, intellect, time and participation in pursuit of excellence", he said.

This came even as the actor launched his much-awaited website naalainamadhe.maiam.com, which talks about building a new sustainable model village.
