Superstar Rajinikanth on Tuesday said he would join hands with actor-turned politician Kamal Haasan for the welfare of people of Tamil Nadu if such a situation arose.
Rajinikanth, who has announced he would launch his political party to contest the state assembly elections due in 2021, was responding to questions from reporters on Haasan’s remarks earlier on Tuesday that he (the latter) would join hands with him for Tamil Nadu’s welfare.

However, Haasan gave no indications of the two aligning politically
