Rajinikanth may end suspense over political plunge
Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is likely to make an announcement today on whether or not he will contest in the 2021 Tamil Nadu assembly election.
Rajinikanth will hold a meeting with the district secretaries of his party -- Rajini Makkal Mandram -- at Raghavendra hall in Chennai.
Suspense over Rajinikanth's electoral debut comes just months before the Tamil Nadu Assembly election. After declaring in 2017 that he would enter politics and contest whenever Assembly polls were held, Rajinikanth has been hesitant to take a concrete decision. But on October 29, his tweet confirmed his dilemma over entering politics.
The actor, who will turn 70 next month, has been advised by doctors against embarking on any hectic political activity. Whether or not Rajnikanth will take the political plunge or not will be known at the end of Monday’s meeting.
