BJP President Amit Shah said that south superstar Rajinikanth will be welcomed by the party but first he has to take a call to join politics. Shah's remarks came two days after the actor hinted about his intentions to enter into politics.
Speaking at a media event in New Delhi Shah said, "When he has to enter politics, how can I decide that? From our end, every good person is welcome to join politics."
On a question about Rajinikanth's intention to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi soon, Shah said that "Thousands of people come to meet Modiji. Good people working in every sector meet Modiji and they should meet."
Last week, Rajini asked his fans, who had gathered to meet him, to be prepared for war. It had given a strong signal that he might join politics. Looking at the Tamil Nadu’s legacy of actors turning into politics, it can be expected that the Tamilians may soon get a new star in politics.
