Even as it still remains unclear whether superstar Rajinikanth will enter politics or not, former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam said his AIADMK camp welcomes the entry of the actor into politics, ANI said. All the media houses across the country gushed out with news of Rajni turning into a political leader soon and would flourish itself in Tamil Nadu before the next national elections in 2019.

Friday's speech, however, set tongues wagging all over again. "So, don't feel disappointed if I don't enter politics", he had told his fans here.

"Go home and do your work".

"We will face it when the war comes".

The kings in the olden days had armies of 5,000-10,000 men and the rest of the population attended to other vocations such as farming; but when war came, everyone launched into the battle to protect their land and their pride.

He also made mention of several politicians in the state and the good work they did. He had also praised Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) Chief Thol Thirumavalavan and Naam Tamizhar Katchi leader Seeman.

Tragically, some lose their lives in the line of duty, and this memorial will honour their courage, dedication and sacrifice. They were honored in an intimate, informal ceremony at the Bradenton Police Department after the memorial.

"Cho Ramaswamy used to say that Mr. Stalin will do wonders if he is given a free hand". Yes, there are (other) leaders: (DMK's M K) Stalin is there, my good friend (and) the best administrator. The film also saw Dr S Ramadoss-founded PMK go up in arms against his on screen smoking. "But the system is rotten".

The actor further asked "Is it wrong on my part to think about the well being of the people of this State?" But on Friday, the Thalaivar saying that the "political system needs to be changed", seems to be a big hint on his entry into the political arena. So we have to change the system.

"I wanted to clear this: There are questions raised about my non-Tamil origin". Out of this he spent 44 years in Tamil Nadu and only 23 in Karnataka. Though I came here as a Marathi or Kannadiga, you have showered love, affection, name and fame. and indeed, you have made me a Tamil.

"We won't compel Rajinikanth to join politics, we won't object (to) Rajinikanth joining politics", said Narayan Thirupathi, a local leader from the BJP.

To his naysayers, he said, "After seeing comments in Twitter and Facebook, I don't feel hurt. He has no idea or the qualification to be CM".
