Am Tamil for 43 years, says Rajinikanth

"We should change the system". "People's notion about democracy needs to change", he said.

"I have my profession, my job. You, the fans, have made me a Tamizhan". Go back to your respective places and do your job.

In what appeared to be another statement of political intent, Rajinikanth today urged his fans to wait for the "impending war". Rubbishing the outsider tag, Rajinikanth said he is a pure Tamil now despite his origins from Karnataka.

Newsmaker - In tight Iran race, outspoken Rouhani breaks political taboos
Many reformist voters say they are disillusioned, an apathy Rouhani's allies see as the biggest threat to his re-election. Ayatollah Khamenei added that the judgment of the two groups would be premised on the people's turnout on elections day.


As per the sources, Rajnikanth has concerns for the turmoil of the politics of Tamil Nadu and was a bit disturbed after the demise of the state's CM, Jayalalitha.

Indicating his political entry, actor Rajinikanth asked his fans to be patient till the battle arises.

With Tamil stalwarts like late J Jayalalithaa and ailing DMK supremo M Karunanidhi out of the picture in the current dispensation, Rajinikanth's fans believe he is the only one who can effectively fill the political vacuum in the state. "I also thank my fans for their relentless support over the years", he said. He, however, added that he had no desire to enter the fray, but did not know "what God had in store for him". But he has not been involved in any political activity since then. The "Superstar" is keeping the guessing game on making everyone ponder on his prospects of taking the political plunge. The BJP high command has also been trying for a long time to woo Rajinikanth to join their party but the legend has softly rejected. Whether he will or not join politics still remains anonymous for his fans. But so far he has not taken a firm stand. "Let's do it, but when the ultimate war comes, we all will see", he said. "Anybody willing to join the BJP under Narendra Modi's leadership is welcome", Raja said.

Madrid Open: Djokovic, Nadal fight on as Wawrinka bows out
Nadal didn't convert any of his six break point chances in the first set but had no problems in the tie-break to take the opener. Fognini played aggressively, however, and forced Nadal on to the defensive as he took the match into a deciding set.


Panneerselvam faction's leader and a former minister KP Munuswamy said it was natural for Rajinikanth to talk about politics because there was now a vacuum caused by the death of Jayalalithaa and ill health of Karunanidhi. "I am happy he called me a good leader". His comments came after BJP MP Subramanian Swamy claimed that the actor's entry into politics would be a "disaster". Even the rumours were that the Rajnikanth would form a new political party backed by BJP and would replace the void role of Tamil Nadu's former Chief Minister and AIADMK Chief, Late Jayalalitha after her demise in December a year ago.
