Actor-turned-politician Rajinikanth on Sunday announced that he would not contest the upcoming General Elections.
In a statement, he insisted not to make use of his name of his fans association names or flag anywhere in political campaigns. He warned the media not to use his pictures for any propaganda.
“I am not supporting anyone. No party should use my picture or outfit’s logo.”
Rajinikanth announced his intention to enter politics on 31 December 2017. Though he is yet to float a political party, he has converted his fan clubs into Rajini Makkal Mandram, an outfit which has been instrumental in putting together a structure for what could ultimately be a party closer to elections.
On the professional front, after Petta, Rajinikanth will begin shooting for a movie in March, to be directed by A R Murugadoss.
