If God willing, I will enter politics: Rajinikanth

IANS  |  Chennai 

Superstar Rajinikanth on Monday said he has no political aspirations but will consider taking the path if it's God's will. He also said if he enters politics, he will be truthful and won't entertain people who want to make money.

"God decides what we have to do in life. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I'm fulfilling my responsibility. If God willing, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won't work with such people," Rajinikanth told his fans at a greet-and-meet here.

The 66-year-old star described his brief stint in politics two decades ago as a "political accident".

In 1996, during Tamil Nadu assembly election campaign, Rajinikanth denounced J. Jayalalithaa and her politics. His strong remarks caused her defeat.

"I did a mistake by supporting a political alliance 21 years ago. It was a political accident. Since then, politicians have misused my name on several occasions. But I have to clarify, I'm not joining any party," he added.

Addressing a large gathering of his fans, Rajinikanth requested them to refrain from smoking and drinking.

"Take care of your family and children. Don't waste your life by smoking and drinking. Drinking and smoking not only affects your health but also your decision making ability. I have been affected enough so please take my advice seriously," he added.

Rajinikanth also confirmed he will commence shooting for his next yet-untitled Tamil project with director Pa. Ranjith from May 28 onwards.
