Superstar Rajinikanth on Friday said that he is a true Tamilian.

Superstar Rajinikanth on Friday said that he is a true Tamilian. He said this while interacting with his fans in Chennai. The superstar said that he had lived in Karnataka for 23 years and Tamil Nadu for 43 years. Rajinikanth said though he hails from Karnataka, fans have welcomed him and made him true Tamilian. Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has lashed out at Rajinikanth, saying the matinee icon should stay out of politics as he neither has the idea nor the qualifications to be a Chief Minister and added that he is a scatterbrain. Swamy also underlined that he never said Rajinikanth is not a Tamilian. Swamy also said Rajinikanth’s true Tamilian remark was not directed against him but for DMK.

A few days ago, Swamy had attacked superstar Rajinikanth over reports of his joining politics. According to an India Today report, Swamy advised Rajinikanth to stay out of politics. He explained why by adding that ‘Rajini’s sense of politics is very bad’, and went on to underline that by saying the superstar is ‘not well educated.’

Notably, Rajinikanth yesterday had declined to answer any political questions, amid speculation over his possible political plunge. “Please don’t ask political questions,” he said when reporters asked him about his recent comments on entering politics, according to PTI report.

Expressing joy over meeting his fans after an eight-year gap, the actor said the next round of meeting with his fans will be finalised in the coming days.

Asked what message he had for his fans, the 66-year-old superstar said, “take care of your family. Give up all vices.”

The actor had given the same advice to fans on Monday, asking them not to touch cigarettes and alcohol.

He had said he had no desire to join politics, but if he did, he would show the door to all “money-minded” people.

“My life is in the hands of God. I’m not sure what he has in store for me. But I will always perform the duty that he bestows on me. So, don’t feel disappointed if I don’t enter politics,” he had told his fans in Chennai.

But if he did join politics, he would ensure that there would be no place for those seeking material gain.

“Money-minded people will be shunned. So, I warn you now itself to stay away,” he had said.

Yesterday, BJP national secretary H Raja had said Rajinikanth is a “popular” personality and is welcome to join the saffron party.

    “ Ticket is yours “ finally rajini has made a mark a precedent that no celebrities or actors have never talked about, ie need to change the system, i would totally disagree to have rajini as CM if he were elected within the preview of present system, but he made it clear. today rajini have appreciated stalin, anbu M ramdoss, VCK thiruma, seemaan…wow this is called precedent secular’ism. in france president elect have picked a conservative to be a PM, it’s a precedent in Europe and broadens his appeal. rajini sir time is running come on , now all you need is bunch of strong bold patriotic fellows like H. R. McMaster who is an advisor to president Trump, you can plunge in the politics. Dear Swamy , katju ….now the ball is in your court.

      Swami ji you should not be so harsh with Rajnikant .There are numerous politicians who lack education and the will to work for people ,still they are in politics and flourishing . Then why not Rajni ji who has a huge support in south India as well as in north India .I feel he deserves his fair chances if he plans to enter politics.

        Rajanikanth shall not enter politics. All actors who joined politics emerged controversial and lost their excellent image. No doubt that if he enters politics, that is only because his acting profession is ended and he aims at making money through politics. He can continue to act and take up social service. He shall not affiliate with any political party either directly or indirectly.
