Why This Kolavari, Rajini?
Chennai: There were speculations about super star Rajinikanth’s crucial announcement on his political entry on April 2nd. But Thalaivaa gave clarification that this meet is not at all related to politics and its is a formal fans meet. He further added that there were no political plans for him in near future.
Why Katappa killed Baahubali, this is a million dollars question which almost equals in curiosity quotient to Why Rajinikanth hesitates to join politics? This is not the first time, Rajinikanth gave a chance to lit the fire about his political entry . Since 1996, the Rajini joining politics story is running as a serial without any end. There are continuous speculations in TN about his political entry whenever a vacuum is created. After Jayalalitha’s demise this is the main topic which shaked TN State once again. Internal disputes in the AIDMK, illness of opposition leader DMK Chief Karunanadhi made Rajini fans think that it is the perfect time for their mass hero to announce political party. BJP which is looking for a charismatic leader in TN tried to woo this Super Star who did not change his mind until now.
There were many U-turns in the past 20 years about speculations of his political entry. Rajinikanth supported Congress in 1995 and later changed his stand as Congress allied with AIADMK. No one can save TN if AIADMK comes into power, this is the only call given by Super Star which made DMK to gain power. This is the place he has in the hearts of TN voters. Rajini, however, regretted for making such a drastic statement about Jayalalithaa. He supported the BJP in 2004 during Vajpayee’s term and maintaining good relation with PM Modi now.
It would be a dream come true, a coup of sorts, if Rajinikanth agrees to join any political party or even supports any political party. And obviously there is a beeline of politicos seeking his support during every election. However, Rajinikanth, most of the times, maintains a neutral stance and refuses to take sides, at-least politically. It is not that he is scared of politics. He has received invitations from various parties, but the Tamil superstar, until now, is hesitant to get into active politics.
“Politics is dangerous and deep. I am not afraid of politics, but hesitant. In politics you need strong roots,”I have been moving in the direction shown by God. If he desires that I should come to politics, I will serve the people this is the answer he gives every time when asked about his plans for political entry.
Previou film celebrities like Late MGR and NTR or Chiranjeevi, Pawan Kalyan from South did not reatct in this way. They took a bold decision leaving the result aside. NTR and MGR succeeded in politics with positive verdict of the people but Chiranjeevi received a negative verdict. Now, Pawan Kalyan is testing his political luck in 2019 elections.
When compared to all above, Rajinikanth craze is almost equal to NTR, MGR and there us clear vacuum visible in TN at present scenario. Only other actor who remained silent about politics until last breathe with a lot of craze in public was kannada Super Star Raj Kumar, he neither supported any political party nor had a smell of it.
It is better for Rajinikanth to decide firmly, once for all, to enter or not, leaving this sea saw hungama every time giving a chance to media to indulge in speculation.
