The actor said he won’t support any political party in the upcoming elections, “I am not supporting any party for the elections…I am firm in my stand,” Rajini said while speaking to reporters in Chennai. He explained that he is not going to support Kamal Hassan, “I have already explained my stand on elections, there is no change in it,” he said.
He clarified that he doesn’t have anything further to say on the topic and requested media not to sensationalize the issue and spoil his relationship with Haasan.
Rajinikanth had earlier said that he would launch a political party, but developed cold feet after launching the logo and website. It was speculated that his party would join hands with the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections.

The superstar has a huge fan following in Tamil Nadu, where the BJP-AIADMK alliance is tied in a close contest with the DMK-Congress alliance. In 2014, the AIADMK swept the state by winning 37 of 39 seats with 44 per cent vote share. The NDA secured 18 per cent vote share but could win just 2 seats (BJP-1 and PMK-1).
