Actress-turned-politician Khushbu Sundar has resigned from the Congress | Twitter: @khushsundar

Stifled in DMK, Congress, can BJP tolerate ‘outspoken’ Khushbu?

DMK leaders say Khushbu Sundar's efforts to balance her cinema and political career worked against her. But for the new BJP entrant, her 'Muslim' side is as much a battle.

BJP needs more than Khushbu Sundar to open account in Tamil Nadu. Star politics is over

Now Rajinikanth cannot stop at words. He is at the helm, he needs to act

Rajinikanth, the politician, wants to clean up ‘rotten’ politics. Mind it.

This might be the last time Rajinikanth can play his ‘will I, will I not’ political game

Rajinikanth’s should-I-should-I-not drama, has been cited to project him as someone who cannot make up his mind, a quality that can kill a political career.

Kamal Haasan is in politics to occupy space left behind by Jayalalithaa

Time will tell if Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth will join hands to create a third front. But TN politics will remain regional; BJP & Congress won’t get in.
Kamal Haasan has said that he wants to contest in politics. But his success isn't guaranteed.
