A throng of celebrities from showbiz as well as politics made the occasion an affair to remember
Rajinikanth said he is not afraid but hesitant to join politics
Superstar Rajinikanth, one of the 25 Indian legends honoured on the 25th anniversary of NDTV in 2013, shared an important message on believing in miracles and being humble all the way.
Superstar Rajinikanth, addressing fans in Chennai today at the beginning of a six-day outreach that is widely expected to end with him revealing his political debut on New Year's Eve, gave the strongest indication yet of his plans as he said, "I am not new to politics. I'm there since 1996. I don't say I am entering politics. I will announce my stand on politics on December 31."
Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush, who will next be seen in VIP 2, was asked if Rajinikanth will indeed join politics, and he said: "Rajinikanth is the people's man, he is so loved." Dhanush also added that the Thalaivar will do what he thinks is best for his people.
Superstar Rajinikanth has tweeted a request to the Tamil Nadu government, asking it to reconsider a 30 per cent municipal tax on movie tickets introduced after the Goods and Services Tax (GST) was launched at midnight last Friday. "Keeping in mind the livelihood of lakhs of people in the Tamil film industry, I sincerely request the TN GOVT to seriously consider our plea," said Rajinikanth, 66, who is shooting for a new film in Mumbai and has kept fans guessing on whether he will join politics soon.
