  • Super star Rajinikanth

Rajinikanth's latest ambivalent comments on the possibility of his political venture has triggered curiosity among his fans and political leaders in the State.

Addressing his fans in Chennai, the superstar said, "Some of my fans urged me to join politics and it's not bad even to enter politics, but making money out of this is bad". Rajinikanth repeated his thought saying he had no desire to join politics, but if he did, he would show the door to all "money-minded" people. I lived for 22 years in Karnataka and for 44 years in Tamil Nadu. However, Panneerselvam denied that Rajinikanth's entry into politics would affect the prospects of the AIADMK.

Twice his supporters and actors have come out in the open floating some "party" or "outfit" in a bid to pressure Rajini, as he is fondly called, to enter politics.

Over a period of four days, the superstar met his fans in batches, between May 15 and 19. "A lot of people have come from so many places to meet me". So, go back home and do your work. "Let us face the war when it comes", he roared amidst a thundering applause from fans.

Seeman is a great revolutionist and I'm stunned by some of his speeches, Anbumani Ramadoss is also a knowledgeable person but what to do?

"The system is rotten". While the system was "affected", people's thought process on policy and democracy had changed and this needs to be addressed by one and all, he said.

Thalapathy M.K.Stalin is my close friend.

"Cho Ramaswamy used to say that Mr. Stalin will do wonders if he is given a free hand". He has travelled the world and has some good plans.

Then, responding to Swamy's quip, Rajinikanth said his fans had made him Tamilian. "Now, I am a Pachai Tamilan".

In 1996, during the Tamil Nadu assembly election campaign, Rajinikanth denounced J. Jayalalithaa and her politics. You have been truly loving and welcoming and made me a true Tamilian.

"I am 67 years old". The people of Tamil Nadu have made me a Tamil by their unflinching support. I grew up with you.

His denouncement of Jayalalithaa during the 1996 assembly elections ensured the AIADMK's rout with a single statement - 'If Jayalalithaa is voted back to power, even God can not save Tamil Nadu'.
