What is Rajini going to achieve by entering politics?
(Tuesday, 14th October 2008)

This is a well debated topic and if we had any sense left, we should have known what's going to happen. If a person is keen to do something, he would have done it long back.

 

I believe this should be taken in two ways:

 

First scenario:

 

I believe (this is my perception), Rajini never wanted to get into politics, but his popularity has been mis-utilized by the directors and others (including politicians) to include politically slanted dialogues.

 

Now that all his fans are aware that he will call it quits from the film industry soon - just that one isn't sure as to when this is going to happen - they are feeling "lost" for they do not have any other goals left. Their previous goal were to support Rajini and his movies and to project him as the next CM of TN.

 

Rajini should be blamed for what has happened and he's trying to bridge that mistake - albiet, he can't come out openly say that - I won't come into politics - for he's not sure how his fans are going to take this. This is a Catch22 situation for him.

 

Had we be in his position, we would have done the same mistake - because when we are at the helm of popularity, sometimes the popularity does get into our head. There's nothing wrong with that - for we all are humans - including Rajini.

 

Instead of forcing an answer on this, maybe the best answer is to leave it at that. If he wants to enter into politics in the future and he's clear about what he wants to achieve, he will do that one of the days in the future.

 

Second scenario:

 

He's keen to enter into politics, but he wants to do it at his own pace. He is absolutely mad about fans forcing him to do this. Ask yourself, would you have done anything if someone else forces you to do something? We might ... if we are not a - control freak.

 

If you have gone through Rajini's personal and film career to a certain extend, you would know that he's a perfect example of a - control freak. This isn't a bad thing ... for people who falls into this category would want to have a control on things that they do and want to do. They do not want to do things by the popularity demand or external forces.

 

Even in this scenario, we should let him have his space and decide as to what he wants.

 

Summary:
Would this affect his popularity? I don't think so. How did one became a fan of Rajini? Is it because you want to leverage his political popularity and thumb your chest around or want to leverage to your own personal gain? Even if such fans exist today, they are a minority in comparison to the majority of his millions of fans.

 

The major mistake that Rajini has done all through his career is not keeping in touch with his fans. Which, he might do it soon and he probably do it at a more frequent scale.

 

These are just my thoughts. If you have political ambitions, you should look somewhere else, instead of asking someone else to lead you to clean the state. And mind you, Rajini alone isn't going to cleanse the political system in India. That requires a drastic change in the constitution itself - to ensure that people with certain education alone will be allowed to stand in elections, people with clean records are allowed, and a age bar is set when people are forced to quit from politics as well. These can be done only by altering the Indian consitution laws and no political party in India is presently keen to do that.

 

So, what's Rajini going to achieve by entering into politics? The answer is simple - NOTHING. For he'll become like any other politician that we have. So, the only objective of fans who are asking him to enter into politics is - to leverage his polularity to make some personal gains to themselves - OR - they want to extend and build a new goal in their life.

 

Instead of getting agitated, if you put in your thoughts and think this clearly (not as a FAN) ... you would know that what all the fans presently doing is really pathetic.

 

Just my thoughts. I don't want to hurt anyone of you with my thoughts and hence I had held this back for a long time. But I guess, it has reached a time when we need to re-look into this whole thing.

 

Having said all that, I will remain as his fan - because he's a great entertainer and morally a great man as well :)

 

Anbudan,

Raj Narayanan

The paragraph is really good. No fan will say if Rajini comes to politics he will be is fan. As rajini kanth says himself in Basha movie that his fan following came due to affection or love and not political mileage or fan heroism. More over Rajini is also loved by common people who may be not his diehard fans but when his movie comes they may go with the family and watch his movie one or two times. If rajini would have just had mass fan following he would have not generated revenue like this and he would not have been Asia's third highest paid actor. The common public says he makes movie from age of 6 year child to 60 year man. His movie always show less glamour and hence child can see. His movies are matured where an husband and wife can go and enjoy. His movie also shows how parenting should be done with childern. Padayappa and many more was the best example movie with all phases. Enjoyment in first half and maturity and parenting in second half. He is a class actor in giving movies to public and mass actorin generating revenues to public.

Instead of mentioning simply RAJINI we can mention as THALAIVAR henceforth.That gives more weightage to our THALAIVAR....isnt?

Makes a lot of sense to me. Rajini has all the rights to decide his future and I beieve he is smart enough to make a right decision.

Lets leave it at that and not prolong this topic.

Thanks all,
Raja

Fans

He goes by astrology which I also belive in that. The saturn is in the 8th positonh till feb 2010. He will make decsion only by next year end. I am an ardent fan of Rajini. One has to understand the Fact that Lok Sabha polls are very much in the conrer. He need at leat an year or two to stablise things.

We shall wait for an year then we can come to conclusion

what Mr. Raj Narayanan has said is only his perception,it's not necessarily true.i would like to remind rajini's words again in ndtv.he said "i believe in destiny,i did not know that i will be here today,and i dont know what will happen tomorow","now im doing the role of an actor ,when god tells me to do a politicians role,i will defenitely do it." lets not forget we have cho's opinion as well that if rajini comes to politics we will have a better future.
when such great personalities with so much experience leave it to GOD,im surprised Mr. raj narayanan is almost predicting rajini"s future in the name of perception.as far as im concerned for everyhting there is time,only time will tell what our beloved rajini is going to do,i believe he is destined to someting big and great,lets honor his decesion and wait patiently "poruthar boomi alwar" :-)

Why does Rajini never says things clearly, not even at this point. He just keeps his fans guessing and raises the expectations bar. When it comes to politics not even a single instance he has spoke clearly. If he is not really that interested to get in to politics, he should say it clearly. But he can get in to Politics and do something to good to the people of TN. I am sure he will never get in to politics other than makes us to keep guessing...

Raj Narayanan,
You have not covered the important aspect!
No one can force our SS to come into politics. It is upto him to decide.
We are expecting from our SS is nothing but the clear statement.
