Rajinikanth announces he will not be entering politics after ‘warning from God’

The major announcement by Rajinikanth comes two days after his discharge from a hospital in Hyderabad where he was undergoing treatment after suffering from high blood pressure.

Following widespread speculation regarding his political entry, Superstar Rajinikanth, who was set to make an important announcement regarding the launch of his political party on December 31, on Tuesday announced that he will not be entering politics due to health reasons. “With extreme sadness I say that I can’t enter politics. I alone know the pain I went through while announcing this decision,” he said.

The major announcement by Rajinikanth comes two days after his discharge from a hospital in Hyderabad where he was undergoing treatment after suffering from high blood pressure. Rajinikanth underwent treatment for three days before he returned to his Chennai residence on Sunday.

In a statement posted on his Twitter account, Rajinikanth said that he takes the recent development over his health condition as a ‘warning from God’ and he will not go ahead with his plans to take the political plunge for the 2021 Tamil Nadu election.

“Without entering electoral politics, I will serve the people. This decision of mine will disappoint my fans and people but please forgive me,” the statement read.

Rajinikanth, who set up the Rajini Makkal Mandram two years ago, was set to announce his political party on December 31. The launch was scheduled for January, five months before the state elections in Tamil Nadu.
