Tamil superstar Rajinikanth declined to answer any political questions, amid speculation over his possible political plunge. “Please don’t ask political questions,” he said when reporters asked him about his recent comments on entering politics. - PTI | Chennai |:May 18, 2017.
But then it is he who actually started the ‘speculation’ over his possible political plunge by talking tactfully in a meeting with his fans recently. Well, it is this tactics he has been following at least for past 20 years.
The truth is that people of Tamilnadu is least bothered about his joining politics. Rather, people of Tamilnadu is least bothered about politics itself and it is the reason for the malady of the state.People have their own pressing problems like historical drought in the state and resultant agrarian crisis, drinking water shortage and alcoholism and an inefficient state government.
And Rajinikanth has no idea about any of these things; let alone solution. He never talks of any of these problems of the common people. Asked what message he had for his fans, the superstar said, “take care of your family. Give up all vices.- - PTI | Chennai |:May 18, 2017. A school master type of advice. What is his policy on the state government itself selling liquor fixing target to its official and throwing the entire state into a huge alcoholic state.
People of Tamilnadu seems to ‘enjoy’ all these ‘tamasha’ at least to escape from their daily headaches. After watching, a TV news channel discussion about Rajinikanth’s possible political entry, a typical man would wryly say, ‘we have seen so many like this before’ and laugh it off.
By the by, Tamil TV news channels TRP ratings has risen over the Tamil entertainment TV news channels in the recent times according to a report in ToI, thanks to the daily limitless ‘tamasha’ of Tamil politicians including OPS & EPS (two AIADMK factions).
The truth is that Rajinikanth’s next film venture worth Rs.400 Cr., is due for release and he is making the right noises. A Karnataka Bahubali type of problem shall not happen to his movie.
Gods must be crazy if he enters politics.
