Why Rajinikanth’s ‘warning from God’ is a blessing for DMK ahead of Tamil Nadu election

Stifled in DMK, Congress, can BJP tolerate ‘outspoken’ Khushbu?

Now Rajinikanth cannot stop at words. He is at the helm, he needs to act

Rajinikanth clearly believes, it seems, that he will be the redeemer, that his government will follow a spiritual path above caste and creed

Rajinikanth, the politician, wants to clean up ‘rotten’ politics. Mind it.

Rajinikanth will try to fill the huge vacuum in Tamil Nadu politics, which has revolved for the last half a century around larger-than-life figures, whether it was CN Annadurai, Muthuvel Karunanidhi, MG Ramachandran or Jayalalithaa.

This might be the last time Rajinikanth can play his ‘will I, will I not’ political game

Rajinikanth’s should-I-should-I-not drama, has been cited to project him as someone who cannot make up his mind, a quality that can kill a political career.
