South’s superstar Rajinikanth (70) announced not to enter electoral politics on December 29 due to ill health. At the same time, Kamal Haasan is active in politics.
Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has described Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan as mediocre politicians. He said that both films have been very popular, but when it comes to politics, they could not attract people to their side. Iyer is one of the three important panels of the Congress that the Congress has formed ahead of the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu.
Iyer said in a conversation with the news agency that Rajinikanth has decided not to enter politics. This decision is not going to make much difference in the Tamil Nadu elections. He said, ‘Even when Rajinikanth had said that he was going to enter politics, I had said that it would not make any difference at all. Now when he has decided not to enter politics, I will repeat the same. It will not make any difference at all. Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth are nothing more than the average political player. ‘
There was more talk during MGR and Jayalalithaa
He said, ‘Things were different in the old days, when MG Ramachandran (MGR), Shivaji Ganesan and Jayalalithaa gave a revolutionary social message after being associated with films. Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan never used cinema to convey a political message. These people remained the same. These are no such people who can pull people from their political thinking.
Mani Shankar Aiyar said that no one was more popular on the silver screen than Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna, but when he came into politics, what caused him to fail. The same thing applies in the south as well.
On 29 December, Rajinikanth had said that he would not enter politics
South’s superstar Rajinikanth (70) announced not to enter electoral politics on December 29 due to ill health. He had issued a letter written in Tamil and said that he would continue to serve the people without going to the polls. Rajni had said that he did not want to show valor by declaring to enter politics despite his ill health. They also do not want to upset their supporters. Also said – Fans will be disappointed with this decision, but forgive me. Earlier on December 3, Rajinikanth had said that he would form a new party and will also contest the 2021 assembly elections. On December 31, it was announced to announce a new party.
