Ready to Face Assembly Poll Even in 6 Months: Rajini
Tamil film superstar Rajinikanth, who recently announced his decision to enter politics, said on Wednesday that he was prepared to face the Assembly election even if it happened in the next six months.
“I am definitely ready to face it,” he told reporters during a brief interaction before proceeding to share the dais with actor Kamal Haasan at a film function here.
Mr. Rajinikanth welcomed his long-time friend Kamal Haasan’s announcement that he would launch his party on February 21.
“My congratulations to Kamal Haasan,” Mr. Rajinikanth told reporters.
When asked about Mr. Haasan’s latest move, the superstar said, “I didn’t expect the announcement”.
Mr. Rajinikanth also said only time would give an answer on whether the two of them would ally in their political journeys.
“Let us see as and when we go forward (in politics). Only time will tell,” Mr. Rajinikanth said.
Responding to this, Mr. Kamal Haasan said, “I endorse Rajinikanth’s views,” adding, “While I am a rationalist, Mr. Rajinikanth is entitled to his spiritual faith.”
