"Twenty-one years ago, I met with a political accident, supported an alliance and they went on to become victorious", said Rajinikanth.
Addressing his fans in Chennai, the superstar said, "Some of my fans urged me to join politics and it's not bad even to enter politics, but making money out of this is bad".
However, Rajinikanth on Monday has clarified that he will not join any party, hinting that he will float a new party if at all he enters politics. Could Rajini 2.0 be the "Thalaiva" of politics as Tamil Nadu continues to be in a state of flux? "So I advise them to stay away from me", he said. "My life is in the hands of God". The fans finally got a chance to meet him on Monday, after arrangements were made and identification cards issued to office-bearers of fan associations. He added that his name was now being used for "political gains".
"If in case I decide to join politics, I won't allow wrong people to join me". Rajinikanth'sentryintopoliticshasbeen the subject of speculation for many years.
"I did a mistake by supporting a political alliance 21 years ago". Prior to the Lok Sabha Polls in 2014, there was a meet between PM Narendra Modi and Superstar Rajinikanth. However, today's speech carried greater impact because he said that if and when he enters politics, he won't let the corrupt come near him. "I think you all will understand and extend cooperation.", he said. "People from cinema are good at giving statements since their dialogues are scripted by somebody else", he said.
Rajinikanth also regretted that he had not been able to meet fans as regularly as he wished to. He said, "Take care of your family and children". Don't waste your life by smoking and drinking. It will not only affect your physical health but also your decision-making ability.
