  • Rajinikanth meets fans again. Is the announcement on political debut coming

According to reports, Rajinikanth is likely to float his own political outfit and may not join right wing nor the left wing.

"There is an expectation that he will spell out his stand on entering politics".

Chennai: Keeping his fans and public on suspense mode yet again, superstar Rajinikanth on Tuesday said he would announce his stand on entering politics on Sunday at the end of a six-day meet with his supporters here. The actor said he was hesitant to enter politics since he knew its dynamics. "We need to fight to win or there's no use of going to a battle", ANI quoted him as saying.

Rajinikanth also paid tribute to former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, whose death in December a year ago is seen to have left a vacuum in Tamil Nadu politics, especially the ruling AIADMK, and left the field wide open for new faces.

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.

"I was humbled when Jayalalithaa met me at my house", Rajnikanth said. "I will make an announcement on my political entry on December 31", clarified Rajinikanth. "We will see when the war comes and war is nothing but an election". He had said, "Even God can't save Tamil Nadu if Jayalalithaa returns to power".

Earlier this week, Jayalalithaa's party, the ruling AIADMK, failed to retain her RK Nagar seat and lost it to sidelined rebel TTV Dhinakaran, the nephew of Jayalalithaa's long-time aide VK Sasikala. Speculations are on that he will be announcing a new party that day. Rajinikanth said that Haasan knows what a successful politician requires.

Rajinikanth was flanked by directors Mahendran and Kalaignanam. Now when I ask him as a senior in the film industry, he says "come with me, I'll tell you".
