Superstar Rajinikanth today met his fans after a gap of eight years, say reports. It has been learned that Rajinikanth will meet his fans for four days in Chennai next week starting today. The actor will meet his die-hard fans in “batches”, between May 15 and 19, sources close him said, as per PTI report. He had said it “was long due for me.”
The 66 year-old ‘Kabali’ star will not hold any discussions with the fans, but will only pose for photographs with them, the sources said.

Rajinikanth had categorically rejected that the meet will pave the way for him to join politics. “No, no. Absolutely there is no politics,” was his response when reporters asked if there was any likelihood of “major announcements” being made at the end of the interactions, apparently an indication to his fans pushing him to take the political plunge.
His fans have often asked their ‘Thalaivar’ (leader) to take the political plunge, even as he has been wooed by many political parties on account of his mass appeal. Invitations have been sent to respective fan clubs to attend the various sessions allotted to them between May 15 and 19.
The ‘Superstar’ was slated to hold a similar meeting last month, but had postponed it on a request made by them for individual photographs for which more number of group interactions was required.
The last such meeting with fans was in 2009, post his ‘Sivaji’ success.
