Is Rajinikanth As Serious About Politics As He’s About

The only certainty is that nothing about Rajinikanth’s politics is certain, writes T M Veeraraghav.

Over the past few months, it seemed clear that superstar Rajinikanth would not enter the political fray in the 2019 parliamentary elections. Even when he had announced that he would launch a political party, in December 2017, he had carefully declared that his focus was to contest all 234 assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu.

In hindsight, this reflects that he was ambiguous about entering the fray in a parliamentary election. It would have been a complicated situation for him had there been simultaneous polls to the assembly and parliament, but since that is not the case, it was easy for him to stay away from the 2019 polls.

Hence, Rajini’s formal declaration that he will not be a participant to perhaps the most keenly fought parliamentary election in recent times comes as no surprise.
