Entering Politics Requires Strategy, Not Just Courage, Says Rajini
Dec 27, 2017, 00:47
Reiterating that he was not new to politics and that he entered it in 1996 itself, he said, "I know the positives and negatives... that's why I am hesitant".
Claiming that he was not new to politics, Rajinikanth said he needs some time to study and chalk out a strategy. "We will see when the war comes and war is nothing but an election".
Talking about his political plunge, he said, "More than the general public, the press is curious my political entry". I got delayed. I don't say I am entering politics.
The rumours about his political entry have been strong after the demise of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) supremo J Jayalalithaa, which has created a political vacuum in Tamil Nadu. The Tamil superstar, whose "Kala" is expected to hit the screens in the first half of 2018, kept up the suspense by saying, "It does not mean that that I will come to politics.I will announce my stand (on Sunday)", Rajinikanth said.
For months, the superstar whose fans call him "Thalaivar" or "Ultimate Boss", has been cryptic about diving into politics. Rajinikanth also made it clear that the decision that will be announced, will not necessarily be an entry into the politics.
With actors such as Kamal Haasan and Vishal taking the political plunge this year, rumours of the "Superstar" entering politics have only gone louder.
Noting that one has to succeed in whichever field one ventures into, Rajini said, "More than my fans it was the media which is more keen on my political ambitions".
Two of the directors Rajinikanth has worked with are accompanying him.
"If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money".
"I was humbled when Jayalalithaa met me at my house", said the 67-year-old, whose ties with the former Chief Minister were patchy but cordial towards the end.
