Thalaiva (Rajinikanth) has made it clear that Tamil Nadu is all set for a political miracle in 2021. Rajinikanth announced his plan of aligning with Kamal Haasan's MNM. 

Giving a clear hint on what is in store in Tamil Nadu, Rajanikanth has said that Tamil Nadu will create a big marvel in politics. Rajinikanth's comments come a couple of days after he announced his willingness to tie up with Kamal Haasan's Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM). Superstar Rajinikanth on Thursday asserted people of Tamil Nadu will create a "wonder and marvel" in the 2021 assembly elections in the state. The actor, who had announced he will float his own political party and face the 2021 polls, also said issues such as sharing power in case of an alliance with Haasan of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) could be discussed only in the run-up to the elections. He was replying questions from reporters at the Chennai airport.

"In 2021, people of Tamil Nadu will 100 per cent create a big wonder and marvel in politics," Rajinikanth said in an apparent reference to the polls due in two years and possibly about a major role by him then. The actor's response was to a query about an AIADMK leader insisting Rajinikanth's "spiritual politics" was not possible in the "Dravida land" of Tamil Nadu. Incidentally, AIADMK mouthpiece 'Namathu Amma' carried an article on Thursday saying Rajinikanth's "spiritual politics" and Haasan's pro-Left leanings cannot go hand-in-hand in the event of them aligning politically.

Asked about his possible alliance with Haasan and who would be the Chief Minister, Rajinikanth said such issues could be discussed only during poll time, adding he also has to discuss it within his proposed party. Such issues will be "decided then and upon the prevailing situation. That too, I have to consult my party men after I start a party.. till then I don't want to talk about these matters," he said.

On Tuesday, Haasan and Rajinikanth had set off speculation of a political realignment after they indicated their willingness to work together for the state's welfare. The first pitch was made by Haasan who backed Rajinikanth over his comments describing Chief Minister K Palaniswami coming to the top post as a "wonder", saying it was "not a criticism but the reality." Haasan also said he would join hands with Rajinikanth for Tamil Nadu's welfare. Rajinikanth had also echoed similar views. Both have said they were prepared to join hands if the need arose.
