Rajnikanth to announce decision on entering politics on Dec 31

After more than two decades of uncertainty, actor Rajinikanth has announced that he will reveal his political ambitions on December 31 on Tuesday. "I'm saying I will announce my political stance on December 31st", said Rajinikanth who will be meeting his fans from across the state till 31st.

Reiterating that he was not new to politics and that he entered it in 1996 itself, he said, "I know the positives and negatives... that's why I am hesitant". By war, I meant the elections. "On December 31, you will come to know about my plans", said Rajinikanth in his address to his fans.

Rajinikanth's fan meets come after the stunning result of by-polls at the RK Nagar constituency of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa, which has reinforced the sense of a political vacuum in Tamil Nadu's ruling party after her death.

The actor, meanwhile, is said to be conducting talks with several politicians between filming 2.0 and Kaala.

Fans gathered were also witness to his steely resolve about winning in the political arena, he made it clear that there is no point taking the plunge if he does not win.

While Rajinikanth's political entry is widely speculated, there is only one person who can decide when that announcement would be made and that's the superstar himself. He had said, "Even God can't save Tamil Nadu if Jayalalithaa returns to power".

Earlier, the actor had said that the "system is rotten" despite the presence of "efficient" leaders like DMK's MK Stalin and PMK's Anbumani Ramadoss. Speculations are on that he will be announcing a new party that day.

He said more than the people, the media was interested in knowing about his political plans.

"There is no election yet", Rajinikanth added. He had first given a hint of making a political entry in August this year. "But when the time is right, I will be there".
