Film actor Kamal Haasan contested for the Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections 2021 from Coimbatore South constituency. The founder of the political party Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) lost the battle when the votes were counted on May 2.
Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruti Haasan shared a message for her father on social media after the election results were announced on Sunday. Posting a picture of Haasan with a torch, his party’s symbol, Shruti wrote, “Always so proud of my Appa” with hashtags ‘fighter’ and ‘terminator’.
On Sunday, when the counting of votes began, Kamal Haasan was leading during the early stage, but later on BJP’s Vanathi Srinivasan overtook him and ultimately won the election by around 1,500 votes. Haasan’s defeat in his maiden political battle also failed to open MNM’s account in Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Haasan will next be seen in Indian 2.
