Tamil superstar Rajinikanth may soon launch his own political party. Senior RSS ideologue S Gurumurthy has advised him to do so. Earlier, BJP has planned to enter Tamil Nadu riding on the huge popularity of the Rajinikanth in the state.
At the same time, Amitabh Bachchan has advised him not to go for active politics. Amitabh himself had contested and won from Allahabad Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh on a Congress ticket.
Rajinikanth, born Shivaji Rao Gaekwad in Bengaluru, has a cult following among Tamil movie fans. He is the most popular actor in Tamil Nadu today and has legions of fans in Southeast Asia and Japan.
A couple of years ago, when Rajinikanth had been ill and undergoing treatment for a kidney ailment in Singapore, his fans were so happy and relieved that the superstar overcomes his illness that they proceeded to shave their heads. They offered prayers at the temple of Lord Muruga at Palani in Tamil Nadu and also arranged free meals for some 1,500 people. Rajini is known as the “Dancing Maharaja” in Japan.
All eyes are now on Rajini, whether he will confirm this news or not. And if he joins BJP? or make his own political party.
