Superstar Rajinikanth joining politics has been a constant talk of the town. The actor who announced a meet and greet with all his fans has kicked off his six-day long fan meet today at the Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Kodambakkam in Chennai.

Rajinikanth said on Tuesday he will announce his decision on his much-awaited political debut on December 31, adding to the suspense whether he will fulfil his fans’ desire of seeing him in a new avatar in Tamil Nadu, where the death of former chief minister and AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa created a void.

“There’s been so much speculation about my political entry. I am not saying I will definitely come into politics. I will announce my decision on December 31. I am not new to politics. I have been reluctant because I am aware of the losses one has to incur in this journey,” Rajinikanth said .
