God will write my political script: Rajinikanth

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth has said it is up to God to decide whether he would enter politics. Speculation was rife that Rajini may wear a politician’s coat after the release of his mega-budget film Enthiran.

Speaking at a function to celebrate the 40 years of Tamil Film Directors’ Association, Rajini downplayed rumours of his entering politics. “It is in the hands of the almighty,” he said in reply to a question by ace director K Balachander, who is said to have discovered his acting talent and brought him to Tamil tinsel town. At that time, Rajinikanth was a conductor in neighbouring Karnataka.

Some months ago, Rajini kept telling reporters that any decision on entering politics would be taken only after the completion of Enthiran.

With elections to Tamil Nadu scheduled to be held by May 2011, Balachander popped the question that’s been on everybody’s minds to the superstar at an interactive session. “I don’t know, it’s in the hands of almighty,” Rajini quickly replied, while revealing that his favourite political leader was former Singapore president Lee Kuan Yew.

Asked how he would repay millions of fans and the Tamil film industry, which has crowned him superstar, he said, “I will strive to work in a manner that what would make Tamils and the Tamil film industry proud.”

Known to be humble, religious and grateful to all those who helped him achieve fame, Rajini said he missed his privacy on becoming a superstar. “I am a victim of circumstances and miss my private life. But Shivaji Rao, the simple man, will always be inside me,” he replied to a thunderous applause.

Asked if he would follow in the footsteps of his great friend from Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan and act in films aimed at national awards, Rajini replied, “It’s in the hands of my directors.”

Rajini also ruled out writing an autobiography or authoring anybody else to write his biography. “In that case [writing an autobiography], it has be an honest effort and in that process I many hurt some people. Mahatma Gandhi had the guts to write such an autobiography. I will do so when I get the guts,” he said.
