On the last day of 2017, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth condfirmed that he would soon be forming his own political party and entering politics. As expected, this created a quite a buzz in the industry. While most stars welcomed the move, some opposed it and said that they would not be able to vote for ‘Thalaiva’. Now, actor Raghav Lawrence has spoken on Rajini entry into the world of politics and made it clear that he will support him ‘blindly’. Recalling his reaction to Rajinikanth’s mega announcement, he said that he was thrilled by it and jumped with joy.
“Like Thalaivar’s crores of fans, I was also sitting in front of the television on 31 December. And my entire family was waiting too. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that Thalaivar would deliver a speech like that. I was quite stunned. He presented his points with excellent clarity. Many people are criticizing his political entry by pointing out his age. At a time when famous leaders are reading from the paper while addressing gatherings, he delivered his entire speech from his mind. Age is just a number. It’s been a long time since I danced happily. The minute Thalaivar made his announcement, I started dancing in my home. I was in seventh heaven the whole day,” he added.
Speaking about Rajini’s brand of politics, he said that it would be simple just like the person himself. He added that the star would clean the ‘cresspool’ that is the political system of today.
“Thalaivar’s politics will be very simple like how he leads his life. It will be accessible for people. That’s what he meant by transparent politics. Everyone keeps saying that politics is a cesspool. But once he enters, he will succeed in his mission to cleanse the system,” he added.
Well, these are some sweet words and are bound to create a buzz amongst fans. On the work front, Lawrence is currently working on ‘Kanchana 3’. As far as Rajinikanth is concerned, he currently has ‘2.0’ and ‘Kaala’ in his kitty.
