So far, Rajinikanth has not confirmed that he will make a political debut, though he continues to hint at it. "I have not denied it. We are discussing and yet to take a decision. Once I take a decision, I will inform you," Rajinikanth told reporters at Chennai airport last week, reported news agency PTI. Last month, he told fans, "If God is willing, I will enter politics tomorrow."
"Rajini has every right to come to politics. But he has to be voted by the people," said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, who leads one faction of the AIADMK which split after the death of J Jayalalithaa. The state's BJP leaders have already invited Rajinikanth to join the party.
