After the luncheon meeting at the actor's Eldams Road residence, Kejriwal, with Kamal Haasan by his side, told the media that it was important that when India was battling corruption and communalism, all like-minded people should talk to each other and work in tandem.
I am really happy to learn that a large number of people of the country are against communalism and corruption but rarely people have the courage to speak their mind," the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said.
"Kamal Haasan is a man of integrity and courage. He has the courage to stick his neck out and talk about communalism and corruption.
A lot of people feel strongly against these things but don't come out and express," Kejriwal said. "Rather than from speaking from outside, he should enter politics and fight these forces."
On his part, Kamal Haasan said it was an honour to learn that Kejriwal wanted to meet him. His residence was always politically active during his father's time though he himself had kept away from it, he said.
"You can very well guess what we would have discussed," said the actor, who has of late been making political statements. He added that whoever was fighting corruption and communalism were his relatives. "That way this relationship will continue."
He added: "The reason why we got together and the purpose is singular... Kejriwal has a national profile of fighting corruption and communalism. And whoever is fighting these forces are my relatives.
