Actor turned politician Kamal Haasan did not figure in the 2nd and final list of candidates for the Lok Sabha election and by-polls to the 18 assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu. Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) president has decided to not contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Kamal Haasan has made a formal announcement in this regard just a while ago. The announcement comes as a major disappointment for Kamal Haasan’s fans and the supporters who were expecting him to contest the Lok Sabha polls.
