After wooing movie buffs with his blockbuster films, superstar Rajinikanth is likely to take a plunge into politics. There are reports that the 66-year-old has been meeting voters in Tamil Nadu. The actor confirmed this to reporters. “I don’t deny meeting them. We are in discussion and I will make an announcement when things are finalised,” he said.

There is also an air of anticipation that the Kabali actor will be launching his own party, which could align with the BJP in the 2019 elections. According to reports, BJP has extended an invite to him to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi.

As soon as the news hit the ears of Twitter users, there have been quite a lot of reactions on social media. Standing by his side, most of his fans are quite delighted to know of his political plans. Take a look at some of the tweets here.

A month ago, the actor had hinted towards his political plans while addressing a large gathering. He had said he will choose the path of politics “if God willing”.

“God decides what we have to do in life at every phase. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I’m fulfilling my responsibility. If God willing, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won’t work with such people,” he had said.

    We have a candidate for PM position after 2024, when Modi steps down. We are waiting for the Golden Day when Rajni Sir would make a official announcement.

        Dear Rajanikanth, We love you as a great actor, real Super star but as a politician that too at this stage. Absolutely No. You could have taken this decision in 1996 but you missed the bus. You will be committing great b er if you decide to plunge into politics now. Now Tamil Nadu politics are in turmoil with fragmented parties. your party will be one more in the Nos. (like Seeman.s amd Thirumavalavan's) with little impact on the Electorate. Please, please Rajanikanthji, avoid suicidal step remember the fate of late Sivaji Ganesan.

            Hi Ramamurthy, There are indeed lot of criticisms against Rajnikanth due to his inaction for over 20 years. But over these years we have witnessed a strong administration from the able leadership of Jayalalithaa. I do accept that there are lot of pending issues like Cauvery crisis, farmers' crisis and so on and so forth. But we need to accept that no one could have been so capable in the recent years other than her. Had Rajnikanth entered into politics during those period, it would have been a debacle. With such a political vacuum being prevalent at the state now, it is really a wise decision of him to step into politics .
