Finally he realised it would b very difficult for him to b a superstar in politics. Health issue is just an excuse. Surely a sensible decision. Wish him all the best.

That man's health has been questionable even when he was younger. In his movies, he is acting virile and active, and his stunt doubles misled his foolish fans that he is healthy.

Three weeks ago, he said he was not afraid of his life .but now, he says he is concerned about the fluctuation in blood pressure .
Then why did he appoint two persons to mange his party?

Rajinikanth could never had made an impact in tamilnadu. Hardly he would have secured 2% votes had he contested. He was forcefully dragged into politics by stupid persons like gurumurthy, rss and bjp. It's a foregone conclusion that he will face a severe drubbing if he involves directly or indirectly

Is Word "Thalaiva" relevant anymore?

Author — Vjn


Fact is, It's late. We expect him on 1996. When he become close to Bjp, he lost the support base. He was seen as outsider. Fact is, he can't even become an MLA. He understand the reality in advance.

Except Mr. Ram, no one in the debate doesn't know or understand the ground politics in TN state. NDTV should bring people who knows TN politics.

A leader is one take on the spot decision.His reluctance at every turn proved that he doesn’t have leadership skill.

As the saying goes - Don't Say Yes When You Want To Say NO. Hope this is final?

Finally puppet show called " rajni political entry" propped by right wing groups has finally ended.
For last 10 or 15 years, image of rajni as a some sort of demi god of TN was carefully planted by reporters and journalists belonging to 3% groups, who have been sidelined in TN for last 50 years, in english media.

People of TN always were very clear that they may like rajni on screen certainly not as politician.
TN will be always be led by dravidian idealogy 👍👍

Do you know what is really saddening?
The lack of intellectual politicians over some overhyped Actor. We are not in 1920, one is capable of educate himself on the subjected field and participate for it.

One of the reason for Rajanikant's U turn is the recent strained relation between Al AMDK and BJP .
