Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended his best wishes to Tamil film superstar Rajinikanth on his 70th birthday on Saturday. PM took to his Twitter handle and wrote, "Dear @rajinikanth Ji, wishing you a Happy Birthday! May you lead a long and healthy life."
Meanwhile, fans of the actor-turned-politician gather outside his residence in Chennai, to wish him on his birthday.
After years of speculation, Rajinikanth recently announced his decision to launch a political party and contest the upcoming assembly elections in Tamil Nadu. He will make a formal announcement regarding his political venture on December 31.
"A political party will be launched in January; Announcement regarding it will be made on December 31st," the south Indian superstar said in his earlier tweet.
Rajinikanth announced his entry into politics in 2017, at a time when Tamil Nadu faced a vacuum after the demise of AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa and ailing of DMK chief M Karunanidhi.
