What Is Rajini Going To Do On April 2nd?

Chennai: This is a million dollars question bothering the politicians and the political observers in Tamil Nadu. Rajinikanth on Wednesday gave a call to his fans association to meet him on April 2nd for an important discussion.

It is a top secret that Rajinikanth had a meeting with close aides before he gave a call to his fans. Now speculations are triggered once again in TN that super star will make his stand clear on his entry into politics.

But according to district fans associations presidents it’s just a routine meeting which had to take place long ago but got delayed due to various reasons.

BJP is trying to woo the super star with CM’s chair if he joins BJP, but Rajinikanth is indecisive as usual.

Political analysts feel if Rajinikanth is waiting for a perfect moment to enter, this is the time as there is political vacuum in the state after Amma’s demise.

Rajinikanth never gives a political statement directly like other heroes do, but in 1996 he took on Jayalalithaa headlong by saying even God cannot save TN if Jayalalithaa wins again. This only dialogue made Jayalalithaa to sit in the opposition. After that, in 2004, Rajini supported BJP-AIADMK alliance which was defeated.

Rajnikanth was far away from politics upto 2014 until Modi met him at his residence in Chennai, but later both said the meet was just a courtesy call.

But Rajinikanth fans are eagerly looking for his entry after sudden demise of Jayalalithaa in 2016.Has the times come? Only Rajnikanth would know. Not even God!

Superstar Rajnikanth Cancels Sri Lanka Visit. And The Reason Is…..

Chennai: Sri Lankan Tamils were affected by the civil war in regions of Vavuniya district, Northern provenance of Sri Lanka. Many of the displaced are homeless and as a helping hand, Gnanam Foundation came forward to donate 150 homes to these Tamilians in Srilanka.

With a cost of 22 crores, Gnanam foundation constructed the homes and approached Rajnikanth to grace the event as Chief Guest. Rajni gave a green signal as per Raju Mahalingam, Manager of Lyca Productions, which is now producing Shankar’s 2.0.

Gnanam Foundation of Jaffna is organising this programme as a two-day event and Rajnikanth will be in Sri Lanka on April 9th and 10th. Superstar will officially handover the keys to Tamilians. Rajini’s trip to Sri Lanka has been cancelled due to pressure from local Tamil groups. Colombo is taking advantage that it is helping Tamilians and not the Gnanam foundation, say the Tamil groups.

“All political parties have asked me to cancel the trip.Though i don’t agree with their stand, I have decided to call off my Lanka visit,” Super Star said on Saturday to media.

He further said that he is not a politician and he is only an artist. “Please don’t politicise the issue and stop my visit. Should I not get an opportunity to visit Lanka again?” he questioned politicians. With the above statement, he clearly once again indicated that he is far from politics.

Mahesh Number One In Tollywood

Hyderabad: Prince Mahesh became the only actor from Tollywood who has 3 million followers on Twitter. Mahesh’s huge following in social media proves he has strong pan India appeal.

Surprisingly next to Mahesh is ace director Rajamouli who showed power of Tollywood across India with his Bahubali. He is followed by 2.8m on Twitter.

Coming to No 1 position in South India, the top place is always occupied by only one man, he is none other than Tamil Superstar Rajnikanth with 3.6m. But these readings or numbers are for male genre.

Surprisingly South India NO 1 position, whether male or female, place is occupied by Shruthi Hasan, who has 4.8 millions, proving the dictum ‘Ladies first’ right even in social media.

Rajnikanth as concrete as Wall

Hyderabad: Rajnikanth, who recently received Padmavibhushan from central Government always remain as a question mark when it matters about his political entry. Maratha Born actor, brought up in Karnataka, ruling Tamil industry faced pressures from fans and political parties to come into politics who received unique reply in style like NO ONE CAN FORCE ME TO ENTER OR STOP ME IF DECIDED TO ENTER.

There were many U turns in past 20 years about speculations of his political entry. Rajnikanth supported Congress in 1995 and later changed his stand as Congress allied with AIDMK. No one can save TN if AIDMK 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 TN voters. He supported BJP in 2004 during Vajpayee’s term and maintaining good relation with PM Modi now.

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 AIDMK, illness of opposition leader DMK Chief Karunanadhi made Rajnii fans think a 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 set until now.

South people keep their Cinema heroes in the heart and treat as God but when it matters to politics their views may differ. There were mixed results when Tollywood Heroes launched political parties with NTR (late) succeeding and present generation Megastar Chiranjeevi failing to grab the opportunity. May be this is the main factor running in Rajnikanth’s mind.

Only actor who was featured in CBSE with Title From Bus Conductor to Super Star completed 40 years in industry and looking forward with Shankar’s   project is better to stay away from politics.  It is better for this Star who receives highest remuneration in Asia after Jackie Chan and has huge fans following in Twitter (6 million) to enjoy film industry and remain as an actor  like Kannada Super Star Rajkumar (late) did until last breathe.

But his fans disagree with this stand who says Rajni is a great human being. He worked as carpenter, coolie to pull his family before becoming Super Star and if he becomes CM he can solve the issues of poor people very well, this is the picture running in minds of millions of his followers.

Will Rajni remains as Concrete wall or change his mind, let’s wait and see.

I am not afraid of politics, just hesitant: Rajni

Chennai, November 16: It would be a dream come true / a coup of sorts if only Rajnikanth 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, Rajnikanth, 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,” the 63-year-old actor said at the launch of the audio and trailer of his tri-lingual action-thriller ‘Lingaa’.

“I have been moving in the direction shown by God. If he desires that I should come to politics, I will serve the people,” he said. And according to him doing films with social message, is in itself service to society.

Rajni’s much awaited film, ‘Lingaa’ is expected to release on his birthday, December 12. The film is being produced in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Oscar winner A R Rahman has composed music for the film.

BJP pursues Rajinikanth, Khushboo

  • Jayalalithaa’s arrest creates political vacuum
  • DMK, AIADMK bogged down in corruption cases
  • Saffron party keen on gaining foothold in TN

(Kasipathi)

rajinikanth 1New Delhi, September 6: Is Tamil superstar Rajinikanth likely to support the BJP in 2016 Assembly elections? After Jayalalithaa was lodged in a Bangalore jail, rumours making rounds say that the saffron party is keen on taking the actor into its fold to fill the vacuum created by the absence of the AIADMK supremo. Khushbhoo, the star of yesteryears, is also being persuaded by local politicians to join the BJP.

There are celebrities who were elated at Prime Minister Narendra Modi naming them as ambassadors of ‘Clean India Campaign’ (Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan) on October 2 and those who were piqued at not being named. Mani Shankar Aiyar is, perhaps, the only political leader who expressed happiness at not being invited by Modi. Sashi Tharroor, Mani’s colleague in the Congress, said he was honoured to be in the list. However, famous but controversial actor Khushboo is among the celebrities who liked the idea of a clean India. She tweeted her support to the campaing. She said every Indian should strive to keep his country clean. The local BJP leaders in Tamil Nadu are not averse to inviting the actor to join their party. Modi had invited Kamal Hasan, the Tamil actor who is celebrated for his histrionic talents, to join the celebrities who are named as ambassadors of the campaign. But the Prime Minister appears to be interested in inviting the other superstar Rajinikant into his party to capture the Southern state. Rajini has a very good rapport with Narendra Modi. The prime ministerial candidate of the BJP met the superstar in Chennai as part of the electioneering in the May general elections.

Sensing a political opportunity in Tamil Nadu after the most popular leader in the state J Jayalalithaa was convicted in a corruption case, the BJP national leadership is toying with the idea of luring the Tamil super star Rajiniikanth into the party. It has intensified its efforts towards making the superstar fall in line. Tamilsai Soundararajan, President of the BJP state unit, posed the idea to Lata Rajinikant, wife of the superstar, when she visited their residence to greet on the eve of Navarathri festival. Rajini was away shooting for his next film ‘Linga’. Ms Soundararajan went to Rajini’s residence at the invitation of his wife according to sources. She invited Rajinikant for the release of a book on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Senior BJP imagine that the situation in Tamil Nadu is ripe to rope in a celebrity like Rajinikant so that the party can make a mark in the Sourthern State in the forthcoming Assembly elections. With the DMK leader M Karunanidhi in his ripe old age unable to travel, both his sons at loggerheads and the Congress not in a position to take advantage of the situation, the BJP hopes to break the hold of the regional parties on the State. Both the DMK and the AIADMK are facing corruption charges and are unable take a fresh political initiative. The loss of AIADMK is not going to be the gain of the DMK. Rajinikant supported the DMK-TMC (of Karupayya Moopanar) in 1996. The actor’s support would give a great boost to the BJP. Amit Shah, BJP’s national president, is also reported to be contemplating the induction of the superstar into the party.

The question of Khushboo joining the BJP is only in the realm of imagination. The actor herself said she is not in a hurry to take a decision. She said she should not join the party and later repent for doing so if the position and importance given to her are not satisfactory. Khushboo Sundar was a member of the DMK and left the party on June 16 this year. She was unhappy for not being rewarded for the hard work she did for the party. She had differences with Stalin, son of Karunanidhi and the future face of the party.

The national leadership of the BJP is a bit weary of asking film personalities to join the party. Earlier, the party leaders seriously courted actor Sivakumar and met his son Surya but nothing worthwhile happened afterwards. Modi himself actively wooed Rajinikanth, but the superstar only expressed his wish that the party should do well and nothing more than that. Khushboo is watching the political scenario to know which way the tide would turn. She would probably take a decision after a cool deliberation since she is keen on taking a plunge before the 2016 Assembly elections. “I don’t want to join anyone in a hurry and later find out that either we have an ideological mismatch or there is no growth there”, said Khushboo.

If both Rajinikanth and Khushboo are roped in, the BJP would be able to make waves in Tamil Nadu. Both the stars are keeping the BJP leaders guessing.
