Superstar Rajinikanth had wished to join politics and he had announced to bid adieu to films a few days prior to release of Baba. The film directed by Basha fame Suresh Krishna had ended as a disaster. Actually, Rajini then faced criticism from various political outfits and also from social activists due to various reasons.
After taking three years gap, Rajini had made comeback to films with the blockbuster film Chandramukhi, followed by another super hit Sivaji. Enthiran (Robo in Telugu) released in 2010 was a biggest hit in India then.
During Robo promotional event in Hyderabad, Chiru stated he was cheated by Rajinikanth. "Rajini was the one who was supposed to get into politics first and here I am stuck up, while he is busy doing films," said Chiru then.
Rajini at several other occasions specified that nothing is in his hands, which notifies, he was waiting for right time.
Apparently, it was late former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa who might have stopped Rajinikanth entering political arena all these days with a fear of the most popular man in the state would drag the CM post from her.
Not just Rajinikanth, no other Tamil hero dared to enter politics, with a fear of Jayalalithaa would stop release of their films.
Now, Rajinikanth has no big threat in the state and Bharatiya Janatha Party (BJP) has been waiting to welcome him to the party and project him as chief minister candidate of the party for next elections. In fact, Rajini fans are also anticipating for the moment.
Let’s wait and see when Rajinikanth will make an announcement on his next step!
