He added, "Hence, I am preparing for it. Currently, I am having discussions with experts from different fields to lay a solid foundation."  Kamal Haasan gave ample of hints that his target for next general assembly elections which will be held in 2021.

Kamal Haasan will be teaming up with Shankar again for the sequel of their blockbuster Indian, which was dubbed into Hindi as Hindustani. This film will reportedly become the swan song of the Ulaganaygan before he turns a full-time politician.
