Rajinikant not quitting politics; clarifies after fake message of him quitting went viral

  • | Thursday | 29th October, 2020

The viral message that was doing the rounds on social media, had indicated that the actor may not enter politics and that he would make his final decision public by December this year.

Actor turned politician Rajinikanth has termed the viral letter hinting of him quitting politics due to his health condition as ‘Fake’.

In a statement put out on his official social media handles, Rajini has said that while the “statement” is fake, what is stated about his health is true. “A letter appearing to be my statement is being shared virally on social media and in the press. Everyone knows that it is not my statement. Nevertheless, the stuff about my health and my doctor’s advice to me are all true. I will make an announcement regarding my political stand to the people regarding this at the right time after consulting with my Rajini Makkal Mandram members,” reads his clarification issued on Thursday.

The viral message that was doing the rounds on social media, had indicated that the actor may not enter politics and that he would make his final decision public by December this year.

In December 2017, Rajinikanth gathered his fans at Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam, the wedding hall he owns in Chennai, and made a much dramatic announcement of his entry into politics. This was highly debated at the time, as the star was time and again put under the spotlight for his political ambitions or the lack thereof.

Yet, almost three years down the line, the star has remained a reluctant politician so far, not having made any progress in forming his official political party. Rajini Makkal Mandram (RMM) is his fan club turned political organisation.
