Tamil Superstar Rajinikanth is expected to clear the suspense over his entry into electoral politics on Sunday.
In a Firstpost article, Rajinikanth was quoted as saying: "I had earlier mentioned that let us face the war when it comes".
This was for the first time that the charismatic actor, who enjoys a cult status in the Tamil film industry, has clarified his stand on taking a political plunge.
"In next assembly elections I will form a party and will contest all constituencies in Tamil Nadu", the Tamil superstar announced at Sri Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Chennai. I have been in politics since 1996... "About my political entry, I do not know how curious the people are, but the media is". I will announce a decision on December 31.
"If we go to war, we should win, to succeed valor alone is not sufficient, strategy.(is important)", he said sporting a smile.More news: Timberwolves PG Jeff Teague out vs. Bucks with knee injury
"Had I not known its dynamics, I would have said okay", and joined politics, he said. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I'm fulfilling my responsibility.
Earlier in May, while addressing a large gathering of his fans, Rajinikanth had announced that he would choose the path of politics if "God willing".
The actor's remark is seen as a hint that he was strategising to enter politics.
However, Tamil Nadu milk and dairy products developments minister KT Rajendra Balaji believed that Rajinikanth is too innocent to survive in politics. Rajinikanth had said he was in a dilemma only because he knew the entire dynamics of how the field works.
