Rajinikanth’s wife predicted that when Rajini enters politics, the public should expect a lot of change. She wasn’t sure when this that might be as she says that only he can say when he’s ready to enter the politics. Earlier in May, Rajinikanth revealed that he is looking forward to making a debut in politics. The 66-year-old actor dropped a series of cryptic references to his plans and indirectly asked his fans to be ready for the war against a rotten and corrupt political system in Tamil Nadu. He also revealed that he is in talks with different political parties about his political endeavours.
Apart from Rajinikanth, superstar Kamal Haasan also announced his debut into active politics. Haasan, who claims that the current Tamil Nadu government AIADMK is driven entirely by selfish motives, has clearly indicated his plans. He said that he’s ready to serve as Chief Minister and committing to finding ‘youth and fresh faces’ and crowd funding for a political entity. He also states that he could get inspire from the learnings of the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP. Last month, Kamal Haasan invited AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal at his Chennai home for lunch. The actor said that he could inspire in some of AAP’s political start-up culture. But he refused any formal tie-up with the outfit. Kamal Haasan also didn’t indicate when he will make his entry into politics.
Both the superstars made appearance together at a couple of public events recently, one of which celebrated Tamil Nadu’s main opposite party, the DMK. Haasan earlier claimed that ‘Saffron is not his colour’, indicating that he will avert any affiliation with BJP. Whereas, Rajinikanth asked public to support PM Modi’s Clean India Campaign.
