Chennai sources stated that Superstar rajinikanth on thursday asserted people of tamilnadu will create a "wonder and marvel" in the 2021 assembly elections in the state, remarks that come amidst indications of him of politically aligning with his contemporary and MNM chief Kamal Hassan. Meanwhile the actor, who had announced he will float his own political party and face the 2021 polls, also said issues such as sharing power in case of an alliance with Hassan of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) could be discussed only in the run-up to the elections.
Apparently "In 2021, people of tamilnadu will 100 percent create a big wonder and marvel in politics," rajinikanth said in an apparent reference to the polls due in two years and possibly about a major role by him then. Furthermore the actor's response was to a query about an AIADMK leader insisting Rajinikanth's "spiritual politics" was not possible in the "Dravida land" of Tamilnadu.
Apparently AIADMK mouthpiece 'Namathu Amma' carried an article on thursday saying Rajinikanth's "spiritual politics" and Hassan's pro-Left leanings cannot go hand-in-hand in the event of them aligning politically. When asked about his possible alliance with Haasan and who would be the chief minister, rajinikanth said such issues could be discussed only during poll time, adding he also has to discuss it within his proposed party”. Earlier on tuesday, Hassan and rajinikanth had set off speculation of a political realignment after they indicated their willingness to work together for the state's welfare.
