CHENNAI: Ending all speculations, Tamil movie superstar Rajinikanth on Sunday announced his entry into politics. He said he would float a political party and contest in all the 234 Assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu in the ensuing polls.

“I am joining politics for sure,” the 67-year-old said amid thunderous applause from fans.

Addressing fans, he said that his party will be launched ahead of assembly elections at an appropriate time. “The policies of the party will be taken to the people. Truthfulness, hard work and growth will be the slogan of his party,” he said.

“Do good, speak and only good will happen,” will be the guiding slogan, he said. 

Quoting a shloka from the Bhagwad Gita which stresses on the importance of doing one’s duty and leaving the rest to the Lord, he said, “This is the compulsion of time.”

As expected, Rajinikanth has become a top trend on social media with people tweeting jokes and gifs welcoming his grand entry into politics.
