Indian film superstar Rajinikanth, who has a huge following in the country and is one of Asia’s highest paid actors, has announced he is entering politics.

The 67-year-old, who works mostly in Tamil cinema, said that he will “form his own political party” ahead of the next Indian state assembly election.

Rajinikanth said it was his “duty to change the system” in Tamil Nadu state.

The state has been politically unstable since the death last year of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram. She was also a former film star.

Addressing a packed hall of cheering supporters in the southern Indian city of Chennai (formerly Madras) on Sunday, Rajinikanth said that his aim was to contest “all 234 seats” in the assembly.

“If I don’t take this decision now, the guilt will haunt me,” he said, adding: “I am not doing it for any post or money or fame as I have enough.”

Fans let off fire-crackers, danced to music and shouted slogans of support following the announcement.
