Rajinikanth is arguably the biggest name in Tamil cinema today. And, of late there has been plenty of talk of him potentially entering politics in the near future. In fact, some time ago, he had addressed the situation and said that he is yet to take a call on the matter.
“I never denied it. I was discussing with them. But I am yet to take any decision (on taking a political plunge). When I decide, I will let you know,” he had added.
During a recent interview with a leading website, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said that he would be more than happy if ‘Thalaivaa’ decides to eventually enter politics. He went on to add that Rajini deserves to be praised for thinking about entering politics as it shows that he is one unselfish individual who cares for others.
“I know him (Rajinikanth) personally. He’s a wonderful person and an amazing star. If he decides now, at this age and stage of his life when he could just put his feet up and go off to sleep, which I’d love to do in a Jacuzzi when I’m that age and that stage if I ever reach it, to join the most selfless and perhaps, the least thankful job in the world that is to be a part of the political system and do good for others; it’s quite an amazing thing,” he added.
We are sure that SRK’s kind words are bound to create a buzz amongst Rajinikanth’s fans.
On a related, this is a busy time for SRK as well as Rajinikanth. King Khan’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ hit screens today amidst fanfare. As far as Rajini is concerned, he has ‘Kaala’ and ‘2.0’ in his kitty.
