Rajinikanth drops more hints on joining politics

Given that it has taken him more than 20 years to even openly talk about politics again, since he burnt his fingers in 1996, it is no surprise that Superstar Rajinikanth is a fan of gradualism. Will The question is Will Rajnikanth join politics or not and if sources are to be believed, then we'll get this answer on Rajnikanth's upcoming birthday.

"It is natural for Rajinikanth to talk about politics because there is now a vacuum caused by the death of Jayalalithaa and ill health of Karunanidhi", said former minister K.P. Munuswamy. But on Friday, the Thalaivar saying that the "political system needs to be changed", seems to be a big hint on his entry into the political arena.

Meeting fans in Kodambakkam in Chennai, today, Rajinikanth first spoke about the speculations of his entering politics. He added that if some in Tamil Nadu were to ask him to leave the state, he would rather go to Himalayas than settle down in any other State. A new generation of very educated tamilians who are assertive, who are of influence and they want now national politics to come to Tamil Nadu. I will call you when there's a war. You have been truly loving and welcoming and made me a true Tamilian. Go to your places, do your duty, take care of your vocation.

And when is it time for war? "Therefore a change is required to set things right", Rajinikanth said adding "for that to happen there has to be a change in people's mind set".

As per the sources, Rajnikanth has concerns for the turmoil of the politics of Tamil Nadu and was a bit disturbed after the demise of the state's CM, Jayalalitha.

Seeman is a great revolutionist and I'm stunned by some of his speeches, Anbumani Ramadoss is also a knowledgeable person but what to do?

He said said that even if he (Rajinikanth) chooses to enter politics there will be no impact on the AIADMK and for that matter nobody can affect the AIADMK. His comments came after BJP MP Subramanian Swamy claimed that the actor's entry into politics would be a "disaster". "We will also welcome if he comes (joins) to BJP", state BJP leader and Union Minister of state Pon Radhakrishnan said recently.
