Superstar Rajinikanth

"I will announce my stand on entering politics on December 31".

However, he said, this does not mean that he would enter politics, but that he would announce his stance on politics on the last day of 2017. While meeting his fans in Chennai, he said that he is not new to politics, but one has to prepare well and have a strategy before entering into politics. If you go to war, you should win. Speaking at the beginning of a six-day outreach in Chennai, the acting sensation on Tuesday hinted towards the chances of him declaring his debut in politics on the New Year's Eve.

Rajinikanth, who has been nurturing his political dreams for over two decades, apparently was the first among the many to have sensed the golden opportunity to foray into politics in Tamil Nadu, considering the present political turmoil.

"I was humbled when Jayalalithaa met me at my house", Rajnikanth said.

Fans and association leaders close to Rajinikanth, however, claim that Rajinikanth's entry into politics is confirmed and they are awaiting the big announcement.

The actor, meanwhile, is said to be conducting talks with several politicians between filming 2.0 and Kaala.

He also told his fans in May, "Let us face the war when it comes".

The superstar's political stand has been much speculated upon since 1996 when he made a strong political comment that impacted that year's election results.

"If Jayalalithaa is voted back to power, even God can not save Tamil Nadu", the actor had said. "I shall announce my decision on 31st December".

Rajinikanth, who has dominated southern films like a colossus for the past four decades and enjoys nearly demigod-like status among his legion of followers, is expected to announce his political debut on the last day. "Have the elections come already?" he said.

Rajinikanth was flanked by directors Mahendran and Kalaignanam.
