Actor Rajinikanth has said that he would not be supporting anyone in the forthcoming R.K. Nagar bypolls.
“My support is for no one in the upcoming elections,” the 66-year-old star tweeted.
This is not the first time actor Rajinikanth has commented on political developments. Political parties have, over the years, tried to capitalise on Rajinikanth’s mass appeal.
But the actor himself has been opened on the issue. In 2014, Rajinikanth said he was not “scared of entering politics, but only hesitant because of what such a decision requires.”
He also did not rule out such a possibility in the future. “I am a product of circumstances. So, if a condition arises, I could enter politics. I am only hesitant because I know the depth of politics. I have to step on so many shoulders,” he said.
