If God willing, I will enter politics tomorrow.

Addressing his much-excited fans over his political aspirations, Rajini said, "I'm not sure whether who is more curious about my political entry, the people or the media".

Following months of speculation over his political plans, actor Rajinikanth still kept everyone guessing on Tuesday when he addressed fans at the start of a six-day outreach programme in Chennai.

At the same time, he took two steps back by confessing: "I am hesitant to enter politics since I know its dynamics". "We need to fight to win or there's no use of going to a battle". I told earlier itself let us wait until the war is here.

Speaking in the meet, Rajinikanth said "I am not new to politics. I will announce a decision on December 31".

Putting an end to the rumours on his political entry, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is expected to finally open on his political entry. Had I not known them, I would have taken the plunge a long before. Stressing on the importance of discipline and positive energy, he advocated meditation and asked his fans not to give room for negative thoughts as it would have an adverse impact on their well-being.

Tragedy strikes several families following a Christmas Eve plane crash
In a separate statement, the sheriff's office said the plane was heading east into heavy fog when it took off from the airport. Authorities investigating the crash say it was very foggy around the Bartow Airbase early Sunday morning.


Now, in view of the perceived political vacuum in Tamil Nadu after the demise of Jayalalithaa and DMK president M Karunanidhi being inactive due to ill health, the topic of Rajinikanth entering politics has cropped up again.

Actor Vishal Krishna shouldering leadership responsibilities in actors' and film producers forums too had evinced interest in politics.

Talks of Rajnikanth, and actor Kamal Haasan, foraying into Tamil Nadu politics sprung up following the death of chief minister J Jayalalithaa in December 2016.

Fans from various districts will be meeting Superstar Rajinikanth from December 26 to 31.

Fans from Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur are to meet the superstar today.
