Impressed by Narendra Modi’s work and achievements as a BJP PM candidate, South Indian Superstar Rajinikanth is likely to join politics, said by sources.
For more than a decade now, the fans of Superstar Rajinikanth have wanted him to join politics.
“He is the most responsible and respected person in the state and he has concerns for the nation in general and the state in particular”, said BJP State president Pon Radhakrishnan while speaking to mediapersons. He said, “I issue an open appeal to the actor to take a good decision and voice in favour of the party”
Rajinikanth is an Film actor, media personality, and cultural icon in India. His real name is Shivaji Rao Gaikwad. Always he was the part of Politics directly or indirectly. In 1995, Rajinikanth began supporting the Indian National Congress after meeting Prime Minister Narasimha Rao. Later in 2011, Rajinikanth announced his support for the anti-corruption movement led by Gandhian Anna Hazare. He even offered his marriage hall, Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Chennai free of cost for the India Against Corruption members to hold their fast.
Local fan associations of Rajinikanth in Tamil Nadu continuously speculated his entry in politics. In this regard, a few fans in Coimbatore began a political party in 2008 for Rajinikanth, in an attempt to pressure his entry. The party was named the Desiya Dravadar Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (DDMMK), introducing its own flag and symbol for the party. After learning about this, Rajinikanth wrote an open letter to the media and declared that he had no connection with these events and warned fans not to indulge in such activities and that he would take legal action if they failed to adhere.
He also mentioned that he was not interested in politics and thus, was only committed to working in films. He added that nobody can force him to enter politics, just as no one can stop him from entering it.
