But the voters have gone beyond this rhetoric now.
Can Kamal Haasan do an MGR or end up like Vijayakanth?
In fact, when MGR broke away from the DMK, it was easy for him to convert his fan clubs into party wings as he had already knew from experience the organisational heft a political party requires. More than the fan clubs, senior leaders and party cadres who were upset or disappointed with DMK leader M.

He might emulate Mahatma Gandhi in opposing corruption, and Periyar in opposing communalism, but his lack of connect with people at the grassroots will hurt him. His following on Twitter would not help him here. Politics is, essentially, a combination of strategies and publicity stunts. MGR was regarded as the leader of the masses; he never played a thug or a villain in any of his films.
He was the saviour of women.

He was never seen smoking or drinking or stalking girls in his films. He was always the saviour of mankind. His films always—subtly—projected his party ideology. The villain in his films was clearly defined as the Brahmin from the north. The same cannot be said about both Haasan and Rajinikanth. Also, neither Haasan nor Rajinikanth are known to tolerate criticism.
And he is no Karunanidhi, who had always been inclusive, building a pedestal for himself with all the brickbats critics aimed at him.
He launched Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam in and projected himself as an alternative to Karunanidhi and Jayalalithaa. But he failed miserably, struggling to win elections on his own.
Apparently, like Vijayakanth, his counterpart in Andhra Pradesh, Chiranjeevi, too, could not conquer the political space in his state despite a huge fan following and the sizeable crowds he attracted during public meetings. In nearby Karnataka, too, matinee idol Rajkumar could not find his feet in politics. The reason, probably, was that progressive thinking had entered the psyche of the state during the days of Rajkumar itself, in the form of novels of R. Ananthamurthy, and plays by B.
Karanth and Girish Karnad. So much so, the DMK leadership hit him below the belt by insinuating that a Telugu-ite should not be allowed to rule over the people of Tamilnadu.
Being one from neither the ruling party nor the major opposition, the welfare and developmental activities he launched in his constituency did not receive adequate support from the state government. In what seems to be a part of a virtuous circle in the offing, he is blessed with a wife who has proved in a short time that she is politically savvy too like her husband. The people of Vridhachalam were happy with his performance. Her husband would repeat the achievement over the entire state of Tamilnadu if his party was voted to power in the state.
She wanted the entire state to benefit in the same manner as Vridhachalam.
Premalatha is often accompanied by her brother Satish and the two command enormous clout in the party. She reminded the audience that the DMDK was not just another new political party as described by some politicians.

Jayalalithaa, the AIADMK supremo, about a couple of months ago, dismissed the alleged threat posed by DMDK by remarking that after a spell of rain, it was natural for some moss to proliferate and a la the moss, the new parties would fade into oblivion. Perhaps referring to this remark, Premalatha said that the DMDK had grown over thirty years from a film fans association into a political party, thanks to the love and affection the people of the state had rained on it.
She dared the other political parties to contest the elections on their own without entering into any alliance.
