Rajnikanth refuses to enter politics after “warning from God”

Superstar Rajnikanth on Tuesday announced that he will not be making his much-anticipated political debut, after promising “a wonder and miracle” in the upcoming Tamil Nadu elections.

“With extreme sadness, I say that I can’t enter politics. I alone know the pain I went through while announcing this decision,” Rajnikant wrote in a letter in Tamil that he posted on Twitter.

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

A popular and respected movie star with a vast repertoire of films in Mumbai and in southern states, Rajinikanth enjoys a fan following that is unmatched.

He and another actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan are widely tipped to be the x-factors in the Tamil Nadu election in April-May.

This is the first election since the death of the state’s two most powerful politicians, J Jayalalithaa of the AIADMK and DMK’s MK Karunanidhi, left a political vacuum in Tamil Nadu.

In 1996, Rajinikanth’s words were seen to be the reason Jayalalithaa and her AIADMK lost the election. “If Jayalalithaa is voted back, even God cannot save Tamil Nadu,” he had famously said.
