Posters say Rajnikant entering politics

October 01, 2008 19:58 IST

Posters heralding the entry of Tamil film star Rajnikant into politics by his fans sparked speculation that the superstar planned to make debut in politics much on the lines of Telugu filmstar Chiranjeevi [Images].

"Praja Rajyam (the party floated by Chiranjeevi) in Andhra Pradesh, Rajnirajyam in Tamil Nadu' read a poster that appeared in many parts of Coimbatore on Wednesday.

"Discussions (with fans) in October and crown (chief minister's post) in 2011. Hunter King, coming to move to Fort (the secretariat)," another poster said.

The posters, with photographs of Rajnikant and Chiranjeevi, bore names of some office bearers of Coimbatore District Rajnikant Fans Association.

Rajnikant was scheduled to discuss the issue of entering politics and starting a party with his fans from October 12 to October 18, amid expectations by his fans that he will follow the footsteps of Chiranjeevi, one of his close friends said.
