TAMIL NADU: Two years after Superstar Rajinikanth announced his political ambitions, speculations have peaked around his role in Tamil Nadu politics.

At an event in Chennai today, the superstar outlined his political vision and said that he will not contest as the CM.

"I have never imagined myself as Chief Minister. I cannot think of myself in the assembly, it is just not possible. I will be the party chief, “ he said.

His intention to take part in politics is to bring about change, he added.

In November last year, Tamil actor Rajinikanth had said that people of Tamil Nadu will perform a miracle in the 2021 Assembly elections. The actor said the Tamil Nadu people will 100 percent perform a miracle in the 2021 Assembly elections.

It is important to note that, slain sandalwood and ivory smuggler Veerappan’s daughter Vidya Rani has joined BJP in Tamil Nadu. She was part of many others who had joined the BJP at Krishnagiri in the presence of party General Secretary Muralidhar Rao, former Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan and others. Vidya Rani said that she had joined the party to serve the people. She said her father also wanted to serve the people, though took the wrong route. Veerappan, who had kidnapped Kanada actor Rajkumar in 2000 and former Karnataka Minister H. Nagappa in 2002, was killed in a police encounter in 2004.

For a fact, a local court had dismissed a case filed against actor Rajinikanth for his comments made about a rally led by Dravida Kazhagham (DK) founder E.V. Ramaswamy, popularly known as Periyar. The actor had made the comments at the Tamil magazine Thuglak’s 50th-anniversary function here sometime back. The case filed by a member of the Dravidar Vidhuthalai Kazhagam (DVK) was dismissed when it came up for hearing. Speaking at the function, Rajinikanth had said that “in 1971, naked images of Lord Rama and Sita were allegedly displayed in a rally led by Periyar in Salem”
