"Greatness can come from the simplest of houses and this is one of them. I Am sure Kamal Haasan ji, that people of Tamil Nadu will break the record of the people of Delhi" he added.

However, Haasan said he can not be stopped from learning Kalam's lessons though he was "prevented", from visiting the late leader's school.

Kamal Haasan briefly interacts with Kalam's brother Mohammed Muthumeera Lebbai Maraikkayar in Rameswaram.

Besides, the Hindu Munnani leaders objected to the proposed visit of the actor to the government school.

In a video message, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan extended his greetings to Haasan, hoping that his entry into politics will enrich the political life of Tamil Nadu and that he will uphold the ideals of secularism, democracy and pluralism. Haasan unveiled the name and symbol of his political outfit in front of a huge crowd at Madurai's Ottakattai Grounds.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to attend Haasan's Madurai rally. "I am a worker to listen to your advice", Haasan said.

In the lead-up to his party's launch, Mr Haasan held a series of public meetings, including one with fisherfolk, and visited the house of the late A.P.J. Fans and supporters of Kamal are so amazingly excited on the party launch and name given.

Haasan seemed unperturbed by the denial of the permission to visit the school, saying "nobody can stop me from learning". Rajinikanth had said, taking a not-so-veiled dig at Haasan's grand ambition of providing a viable political alternative to the people of his state. Haasan, on the other hand, came late to the scene after Jayalalithaa's death and is atleast keeping up to his promise of launching a political party in early 2018.

Actor Kamal Haasan launched his political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam, or People's Justice Front, in Madurai on Wednesday night.
