Video shows Kamal Hasan trying to poke a reporter with walking stick
A video has emerged showing Makkal Neethi Maiam (MNM) chief Kamal Haasan purportedly trying to poke a reporter of a TV channel with his walking stick.
According to Coimbatore Press Club sources, the reporter was videographing Haasan arriving at a polling centre in the Coimbatore South constituency on Tuesday from where he is a candidate.
Haasan, a veteran actor, reportedly did not like being videographed and pointed the lower end of his walking stick at the neck of the reporter and tried to poke him with it, the sources said.
The reporter, however, did not react and left. The video has been widely shared on social media.
Coimbatore Press Club has demanded an apology from Haasan and threatened legal action against the actor turned politician, the sources said.
Haasan has been using a walking stick after he had a surgery on his leg.
