Tamil superstar Rajinikanth has warned the Tamil Nadu state government against re-opening the liquor shops, stating that the decision would result in the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham (AIADMK) never returning to power in the state again. "If the state reopens the liquor shops during the lockdown period, it must forget the dream of coming to power again," Rajinikanth said in a tweet posted in Tamil on Sunday.

The 69-year-old actor's appeal comes in the wake of the state government approaching the Supreme Court against the Madras High Court's order, which had directed the authorities to keep the alcohol stores shut.

Among opposition ranks, actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham (DMK) have also raised concerns over the state government's decision to re-open liquor shops.
