19 May 2017

The comments set tongues waging about his intentions on joining politics.

Here is a Maharashtrian by birth, Rajinikanth's real name is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad and he hails from Karnataka, became a superstar in Tamil Nadu and whose aura transcends most boundaries and all imagination.

Rajinikanth, speaking at the second day of his Fan Meet event, said, "I lived in Karnataka for 23 years and Tamil Nadu for 43 years, Although I am from Karnataka, you welcomed me, made me true Tamilian". "But when the war comes, let us encounter it. God is there!" said Rajinikanth to his fans. The remaining 44 I have spent here.

In no less than a vote appeal he also sought the support of his fans saying, "I will call you when there's a war".
