RJ Balaji, who describes himself as an ardent Rajinikanth fan, told a Tamil TV channel that the veteran actor’s entry into politics would come too late now. Balaji said he had waited 25 years for Rajini to enter politics, but now the Superstar’s time had passed.
Balaji said that when he heard songs from films like Muthu and Baba, he thought that Rajinikanth coming into politics would be great for the state.
As a Superstar fan, I expressed what I felt. Really appreciate your dignified way of expressing the difference in opinion. https://t.co/KoUX2ysgP7

Watch the interview here:
Rajinikanth, who met his fans between May 15 and 19, had expressed an interest towards entering politics. When questioned further, he gave vague responses, frequently attributing the decision to enter politics or not to God’s will.
“God decides what we have to do in life. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I’m fulfilling my responsibility. If God wills, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won’t work with such people,” he said.
Speculations have been rife ever since, with several personalities sharing their views on the subject – some in support of his political entry, others not.
