Rajinikanth to enter politics?

Posted May 20, 2017

He observed that Tamil Nadu has good leaders - MK Stalin of the DMK and Anbumani Ramadoss being among them. "There are senior people in politics, there are national parties, but what do we do when system is bad, democracy has deteriorated", Rajinikanth said.

The superstar also expressed his disappointment over the "wrong system" which needs to be changed.

In 1996, during the Tamil Nadu assembly election campaign, Rajinikanth denounced J. Jayalalithaa and her politics.

"I have responsibilities and works, same with you". "If you all throw me out, I will go and fall only in the Himalayas and not in any other state". Go back to your respective places and do your job. Lets meet when it's time for war, ' Rajinikanth said amidst thundering applause from fans.

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth today hit out at his detractors who used to taunt him for his Karnataka-origins. "I may have come here as a Kannadiga or Marathi from Karnataka but you gave me love, support, name, fame and prosperity and you have made me a Tamil", he said amidst loud cheers from his fans.

Meanwhile, there have been rumours about Rajinikanth starting his own political outfit with the backing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is trying to establish its presence in the southern state and is looking for a face for the party there. Whether he will or not join politics still remains anonymous for his fans. "I am pushed to clarify during every election that I'm not affiliated to any political party", he had said early this week. We need to change the system, he said.

Indications of Rajini's grand entry into politics has made the Bharatiya Janata Party nervous.

If he did, he had added, he would show the door to all "money-minded" people. I am 66 years old now.

In fact, in what appeared to be a delicate balancing act, Mr. Rajinikanth listed the good qualities of political leaders of Tamil Nadu.

The fans of Rajnikanth also believes that this year Thalaivar's birthday will be more special as their superstar will make the announcement whether he would dive into the pool of politics or not. You made me a Tamizhan. Thirumavalavan and Naam Tamilar Katchi leader Seeman.
