Remember 31 December, 2017. On the day in front of packed house at Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam, he announced entering politics.
Speaking on the occasion, Rajinikanth said, 'I am not entering politics for name or fame. If it was for a post I would have joined in 1996. In next Assembly elections. I will form a party and will contest all constituencies in Tamilnadu'.
After his announcement, Rajinikanth said, visited the house of M Karunanidhi at his Gopalapuram residence and sought his blessings for his political endeavour. He also converted his rasiogar manrams as Rajini Makkal Manram. Membership drive began. He had two releases - Kaala and 2.0. His next Petta is releasing on 10 January. An ardent fan of Rajinikanth says, 'Thalaivar is coming. He is sure to float his own political party. The day is not far.' Meanwhile a few says, 'Kamal Haasan has done it and started his party. We wonder why Rajinikanth is hesitating?'
