Setting the anticipations of all his fans and well-wishers, superstar Rajinikanth on Sunday confirmed his entry into politics. The superstar said that he will be contesting in the next State assembly elections by forming a new party.

“My political entry is definite. This is a long-pending decision. I will feel guilty if I don’t take this decision at least now,” said Rajinikanth while addressing a gathering of his fans and well-wishers at the Sri Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Chennai. “In next assembly elections, I will form a party and will contest all constituencies in Tamil Nadu,” he added.

Rajinikanth, who announced his entry into the politics, has also expressed his fear of the media. “I don’t fear entering politics, but I fear the media. I am still a child in this context. I need to be more active and alert on the media. Cho sir (Cho Ramaswamy, late actor, humorist and political analyst) had already warned me about the same. Today, I miss him a lot; he would have given me more strength for this new beginning,” said the ‘Thalaiva’.

"Truth, work and growth will be the three founding principles for our party. I request the fan clubs to assist in making arrangements to give a structure to the party. The fan club should make sure that our message should reach every place,” announced Rajinikanth. “Till that time, I would like to tell everyone to not enter political controversy, fight or shout at politicians. The party will be formed at the right time, and we should work towards fulfilling our promise," added the superstar.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday mocked superstar Rajinikanth’s announcement on entering politics and dubbed him as illiterate. On the other hand, legendary bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has extended his support and wishes to superstar Rajinikanth, as he announced he was all set to enter politics in the coming year. He wrote on twitter, “T 2758 - My dear friend, my colleague and a humble considerate human, RAJNIKANTH, announces his decision to enter politics. My best wishes to him for his success !!”

Another actor, Kamal Haasan, who recently announced his intention to join politics, also congratulated Thalaiva on Twitter, by writing, “I welcome brother Rajini’s social responsibility and political entry.” Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh also congratulated Rajinikanth on his decision.
