Over the last few months, Rajinikanth has on several occasions hinted at an imminent political plunge. However, he didn’t give himself a deadline yet. Finally, the Superstar made the much-anticipated announcement of his entry into the political arena. On Monday, the Kabali actor urged his followers and supporters to register themselves on his newly launched website and app to support his campaign to bring about a change in the political landscape of the state.
While Rajinikanth has announced that his political party would contest from all 234 seats in Tamil Nadu, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma hopes that Telugu film actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan contests all seats in Andhra Pradesh like superstar Rajinikanth is doing in Tamil Nadu. On Tuesday, Varma took to Twitter to write, “I wish Pawan Kalyan will contest all seats in Andhra Pradhesh like Rajinikanth (is) doing in Tamil Nadu.” ALSO READ: Riteish Deshmukh And Genelia D’souza Complete 12 Years In Bollywood
In a series of tweets, the filmmaker went on to add, “If he doesn’t do, Pawan Kalyan’s fans will feel he doesn’t have guts like Rajinikanth. It will be an insult to Telugu people’s prestige if our superstar has lesser guts than the superstar of Tamil people.”
He further said, “If Pawan Kalyan doesn’t with guts contest in each and every seat of Andhra Pradesh, both his fans and all Telugu people will feel he’s just a very ordinary star and not a superstar like Rajinikanth of the Tamil people,” adding that, “Rajinikanth on December 31, announced his plans for a political career. He will float a new party that will pursue “spiritual politics” and vowed to contest the next Tamil Nadu Assembly elections.”
