The speculations about Rajinikanth's political entry have been ascending for the past few days after the actor's closest aide Tamilaruvi Manian had revealed that Rajinikanth is planning to launch his political party in April and he would be carpeting a huge political meeting in August. While the actor has been remaining unspoken about his political entry, Manian's statement has spurred the furore on the political grounds.
If he kicks off his political journey, he will become one of the notable Tamil actors to enter the politics followed by Vijayakanth and Kamal Haasan. Although Vijayakanth's camp remains unstable, his party still has a voter base in the state while Kamal Haasan, a two-years-old politician, has been cementing his political corridors against the state Dravidian parties. Kamal Hassan's party Makkal Needhi Maiam has faced 2019 Lok Sabha elections in a short time after launching the party. The Actor turned politician had contested independently in all the parliamentary constituencies in Tamil Nadu.
However, Kamal Haasan hasn't directly stepped on the election as the party's candidate. He named the candidates of all the constituencies and amid the presence of Dravidian parties, Kamal's party had yielded with a stable voter base.
