"God decides what we have to do in life. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I'm fulfilling my responsibility. If God willing, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won't work with such people," Rajinikanth addressed fans at a greet-and-meet in Tamil Nadu's Chennai.
The 66-year-old star described his brief stint in politics two decades ago as a "political accident".
In 1996, during the Tamil Nadu assembly election campaign, Rajinikanth denounced then-Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and her politics. His strong remarks caused her defeat.
"I did a mistake by supporting a political alliance 21 years ago. It was a political accident. Since then, politicians have misused my name on several occasions. But I have to clarify, I'm not joining any party," he added.
"Take care of your family and children. Don't waste your life by smoking and drinking. Drinking and smoking not only affects your health but also your decision-making ability. I have been affected enough so please take my advice seriously," he added.
Rajinikanth also confirmed he will commence shooting for his next yet-untitled Tamil project with director Pa. Ranjith from May 28 onwards.
