Haasan, who is the founder of Makkal Neethi Maiam, turned on the system and remarked that he has been drinking the water produced from the AWG installed in his office since two years.
Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin greeted Haasan on his birthday and wished him a long and healthy life.

Later, addressing his birthday celebrations, Haasan urged the MNM cadres to gear up for the Lok Sabha election next year.
