State needs political revolution, says Rajinikanth

State needs political revolution, says Rajinikanth”

Meanwhile, sidelined AIADMK leader T.T.V. Dinakaran told reporters here that spirituality was an individual's choice and bringing that into politics would lead to wrong results.

With Kamal Haasan, the only other star in Tamil Nadu who has the stature that can equal that of Rajinikanth's, also announcing his intention to enter politics, several interesting but unanswered questions are being raised.

Rajinikanth, who had earlier announced that his party would contest all 234 seats in the next assembly elections, said many revolutions have started in Tamil Nadu, including Mahatma Gandhi's decision to wear only dhoti and a shawl at Madurai in 1921. "I had worked as a proof reader", Rajinikanth said.

Acknowledging that he can no longer be "media shy" since he has now taken the political plunge, Rajinikanth promised to field questions from journalists on various issues after acquainting himself with the new responsibility.

"At one go, I can not tell you everything", he said. The actor has said he will launch a political party with a thrust on spiritual politics.

Narayanasamy said there was no clarity in what Rajinikanth meant when he said he would champion "spiritual politics".

Now, if such a situation arises, who emerges the victor and how will it affect the fortunes of the Dravidian parties, who have until now completely dominated the political scene in the state?

He said his first interview after K Balachander introduced him in films was in 1976 to "Bommai" magazine and "I did not interact much with the media even in 1996" when he openly called for throwing out the then J Jayalalithaa government from power.
