Looks like the superstar of Tamil cinema, Rajinikanth has backed-off from the world of politics yet again.

Earlier in December 2020, Rajinikanth had announced the launch of his new political party by January 2021. All his fans were more than elated, including those from his native village in Maharastra. But, a lot had changed after the actor was rushed to a hospital due to high Blood Pressure. 

Surely, his fans would have felt the pinch, but Rajinikanth’s ailment must have raised many concerns among Tamil Nadu’s political fraternity. 

On Tuesday, December 29, 2020, he said that he would serve the people without entering the electoral political space. In fact, in a three-page letter that he had tweeted out he justified his move by saying: even if he was vaccinated for the coronavirus, and if his health deteriorates during election tours, those travelling with him would have emotional and financial sufferings.

But, could this be the only reason behind his decision? Listen to the podcast.
