Actor-turned-politician Rajinikanth on Monday said he can provide the rule of AIADMK founder and late Chief Minister M.G. Ramachandran (MGR) and also fill the leadership void that exists in Tamil Nadu. Unveiling a statue of MGR at the Dr MGR Educational Research Institute here, Rajinikanth said he understands politics and can provide the kind of rule that MGR gave.
Rajinikanth, who is yet to formally launch his political party, said he knows that the path of politics is not decked with flowers but filled with thorns. He said he has learnt politics from DMK leader M. Karunanidhi and Congress leader late G.K. Moopanar. According to him, both Karunanidhi and late Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa were great leaders.
But after the demise of Jayalalithaa and with Karunanidhi in poor health, there is a leadership vacuum in the state which he can fill, Rajnikanth said. He said those who are in politics have not performed their duties properly. Stressing that his political philosophy will be spiritual politics, the superstar said honest and casteless politics is spiritual politics. Rajinikanth also requested his fans and followers not to put up banners and hoardings contravening the law and troubling the people.
In films, Superstar Rajinikanth is awaiting the release of his upcoming sci-fi robotic thriller 2.0 which is being directed by Shankar. The film is currently under post-production stage and may be released during Independence Day this year. Rajinikanth will also be seen in Kaala which is a gangster drama which is being directed by Pa Ranjith. A teaser of Kaala will be released tomorrow, March 2nd, 2018 and fans of the superstar are eagerly waiting for it. Rajinikanth will also team up with young filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj after Kaala and 2.0, which will be produced by Sun Pictures and will have music by young sensation Anirudh Ravichander.
