Kamal takes a break from politics citing health reasons

Chennai: Weeks after Rajinikanth announced that he was not venturing into active politics due to his health condition, his colleague in the industry and Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan has announced brief exile from politics.

Kamal tweeted, ‘Due to an accident a few years back, I had undergone a surgery on my leg. In continuation to that surgery, I was required to undergo a follow-up surgery. The doctors had advised me to take rest till then.
I undertook my professional and political responsibilities superseding the advise given to enable me to reach out to my brothers and sisters.’

He added: ‘The love and affection showered by the people of Tamilnadu, was an effective antidote to the severe pain that I used to suffer during my campaign. Now I have an opportunity to take some rest. Therefore I would be undergoing the follow up surgery on my leg as advised. I will come back fully rejuvenated within a few days to resume my campaign with renewed vigor’.
