December 31, 2017, would be recognized as the day Superstar Rajinikanth declared his entrance into politics. It was a choice that was hotly anticipated, truly. Until today, there is a standing joke that bits of gossip about Rajini beginning a political gathering crop up everytime his new film is prepared for release and the buzz famously fades away after the movie hits the huge screens.
The pattern began after the year 1996 — Rajinikanth had openly upheld the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham – Tamil Manila Congress and broadly gone to remark that even God would not have the capacity to spare Tamil Nadu if J. Jayalalithaa was voted back to control in 1996. It is said that Rajinikanth was the significant purpose behind DMK-TMC partnership clearing the surveys. Rajini’s cycle from ‘Annamalai’ was utilized as a political device by the TMC for a crusade. Stories additionally say that he was offered the Chief Ministerial post by TMC’s Moopanar. From that point forward the ‘Thalaivar’ has had different trysts with governmental issues.
Gossipy tidbits again skimmed before the arrival of his Baba in 2002. At the pinnacle of the hypothesis, the actor was relied upon to influence his remain to clear before the film opened. Rajini stayed undecided and that is additionally said to be the purpose for the epic disappointment of the film in the cinematic world.
Be that as it may, the pattern took after, a few cases being Enthiran, Lingaa, and Kabali. Rajini stayed ambiguous and had diverse renditions of a similar position – “I will take the path God wants me. If he wishes me to serve the people, I will” In any case, it didn’t prevent the actor from talking about political issues. He watched a day’s quick amid the Cauvery battle. His relations with AIADMK enhanced and was seen in a roundabout way pulling for the AIADMK-BJP partnership. Be that as it may, he has remained from making any immediate duty of venturing into the political raid.
Indeed, even in his declaration, Rajini has watched that his choice depended on the current conditions. “Something which I did not have at the age of 45 cannot be there at 68. But here, the democracy is at high risk. Whatever happened in the last one year in Tamil Nadu has put everyone mute in their shame. If I don’t take a decision at this moment, there is no more change,” he said to boom praise from fans at the Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam today. He has again summoned the name of God, giving us another term ‘spiritual politics’. It resembles how he says in his film Muthu, “Naa epdi varuven, epo varuven nu yarukum theriyathu. Aana varavendiya nerathuku correct a varuven. (Nobody knows when or how I’ll arrive, but I will be there at the right moment.)” Maybe, the time has finally come.
