Actor Rajinikanth said his party will contest the next Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, adding that he is ready to face elections whenever they are held.

Speaking a day after Lok Sabha polls in the state, Rajinikanth said, “Whenever the assembly polls come, I will face it.” When asked whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be reelected to power, he said: “We will know that on May 23.”

The actor in March 2018 had declared that the vacuum left by the death of two veteran leaders – AIADMK’s J Jayalalithaa and DMK’s M Karunanidhi – was a reason for his decision to enter politics.

By repeating his statement on Friday, Rajinikanth has made it clear that there will be an yet another player in the Assembly elections.
