Tamil actor Rajinikanth, who is currently on a spiritual journey to the Himalayas, said on Tuesday that he would not answer any political questions since he had not yet become a full-time politician and had not yet announced his party.
"I don't want to answer political questions, I have not yet become a full-time politician, have not yet announced my party," Rajinikanth said in Dehradun.
The actor, 67, also expressed concern over his close friend, actor Amitabh Bachchan's ill-health and said he would pray for his recovery.
"I have come here on a pilgrimage. It is a spiritual trip and has nothing to do with politics. Just now heard about it (Amitabh Bachchan's health). I will pray to God, he will be alright," Rajinikanth said soon after his arrival in Dehradun.

Rajinikanth had said yesterday that he will not engage in any political conversations or interactions while on his spiritual journey.
"I am a spiritual person. From here I will go to Rishikesh. When I will enter the politics, I will answer all the political questions." Rajinikanth had told the press at Shivkhori, Jammu.
The Tamil megastar had also said that his politics would be spiritual.
Rajinikanth had announced his entry into politics on December 31 and told fans that his political party would contest all 234 constituencies in the next Tamil Nadu assembly elections in 2021.
