Slamming reports of Rajinikanth being inducted into the BharatiyaJanta Party producerand CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani debunks the entire speculation on the actor’s political manoeuvres.
Says Nihalani, “Will he, won’t he? Such a useless debate. Rajinijiwill never join politics. He is totally against actors going into politics. In fact when I told Rajiniji about his colleague and dear friend Shatrughan Sinha’s plans to join politics in 2009 Rajiniji was very disturbed. He tried his best to dissuade Shatrughan Sinha from joining politics. He felt Shatruji’s fans would feel cheated.Likewise Mr Bachchan when he joined politics Rajini Sir was very disturbed. ‘Why must a superstar of his stature go into politics?’ he asked repeatedly.”
Nihalani completely rules out a political career for Rajinikanth. “Rajiniji’s family thinks he is too innocent to understand politics. He has got feelers from all the parties. But he is not getting into politics.”
