"I'm saying I will announce my political stance on December 31st", said Rajinikanth who will be meeting his fans from across the state till 31st. I am not new to politics but it has become a little late. "I don't say I am entering politics".
Following Jayalalithaa's death in December and now the ailing condition of DMK chief M Karunanidhi, there is more pressure from his fans to take a political plunge considering the political vacuum. "I did not say on December 31, I will join politics".
He was addressing his fans who gathered from several districts Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram, Krishnagiri, Dharmapuri and the Nilgiris at the Sri Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam to meet the actor in Chennai. The Tamil superstar commented at that time, "Even God can't save Tamil Nadu if Jayalalithaa returns to power". According to me, Election is War. Politics is not easy as I've seen the depth, pros and cons of it.
Rajinikanth, who has dominated southern films like a colossus for the past four decades and enjoys nearly demigod-like status among his legion of followers, is expected to announce his political debut on the last day. "And once you enter, you need to win", he said, to loud cheers from fans.
Earlier in May, the actor said he would enter politics that next day "if God wills it".
DMK, now being led by MK Stalin, is yet to find its footing after consecutive defeat in Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.
The AIADMK turbulence has fueled the buzz over Rajinikanth's anticipated political avatar. Speaking before Rajinikanth, director Mahendran said, "We can never know what Rajini is thinking or what he is planning to do". "Rajinikanth will certainly enter politics but he won't be announcing it anytime soon". I don't like people launching their own outfit after being dismissed from a party. Had I not known them, I would have taken the plunge a long before.
