In a U-turn, Rajinikanth decides not to enter politics

Superstar Rajinikanth on Tuesday announced that he will not be starting his political party, citing his health conditions.

The dramatic u-turn to stay away from politics came within a month of his prior announcement to enter politics.

In a three-page letter posted on his Twitter handle, Rajinikanth said, “I will serve people without entering electoral politics.”

Rajnikanth said that he takes the recent health condition as a warning from God and he will not take the political plunge for the 2021 Tamil Nadu elections and start a party.

The actor’s tweet came two days after he was discharged from a Hyderabad hospital where he was being treated for blood pressure fluctuations.

Rajinikanth decided to launch his political party in January,  five months before the state elections in Tamil Nadu and a formal announcement was expected on December 31. However, days ahead of the launch, the actor has cancelled the plans.
