Popular Tamil actor Karthik has joined the Congress party in Tamil Nadu. For the party this is huge fillip as far as star power goes as it recently lost its popular leader GK Vasan.
Dissolving his own party, Akila India Naadalum Makkal Katchi, Karthik formally joined the Congress in the presence of state party chief EVKS Elangovan.
Karthik's entry into the Congress comes days after former union shipping minister Vasan announced his decision to float his own political party.
Karthik is the son of late actor Muthuraman. He had joined the All India Forward Bloc during the 2006 assembly polls. Later, he floated his own party.
