Rajnikanth continues to hint that he might be joining plitics

Continuing to maintain his see-saw attitude towards the recent criticism over his remarks on joining politics, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Friday rhetorically said the people would see what happens when the `ultimate war` comes.

"I have responsibilities and works, same with you. Let`s do it, but when the ultimate war comes, we all will see," he said.

The actor was possibly reacting to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy`s remarks dubbing him as a `disaster` in Tamil Nadu politics.

The superstar also expressed his disappointment over the `wrong system` which needs to be changed.

While mentioning the names of eminent Tamil politicians, Rajinikanth said those people are able administrators but the `wrong system` does not let them work properly.

Rajinikanth further said that the system needs to be changed, and moreover the mindset of the people has to change.


"There are many senior people in politics. One among them is M.K. Stalin who is very able. Anbumani Ramadoss is an able administrator who has toured across the world. Thirumavalavan has been very vocal about each and every subject," he said.

Rajinikanth left his fans and political circle into a speculation spree when he hinted towards joining politics earlier on Monday.

Continuing to maintain his intriguing stand over joining politics, Rajinikanth further asserted that some people used his name for `political gains`.

Addressing his fans in Chennai, the superstar said, "Some of my fans urged me to join politics and it`s not bad even to enter politics, but making money out of this is bad."

However, the star added, "If in case I decide to join politics, then those making money will not be entertained."

"God made me an actor and I promise Rajini will never ever disappoint his fans in acting," he added.

Rajinikanth made the remark during the first of his five-day `Janta Darbar` which he held to interact with fans after a gap of eight years.
