Chennai, Feb 6: Going by social media posts, there seems to be an extensive 'unhappiness' among many about All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary VK Sasikala becoming the next chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
Thus, Rajinikanth fans want him to join mainstream politics to provide a better political alternative after the demise of late CM Jayalaithaa last year.
On social media, fans of Rajinikanth appealed to their 'hero' to join politics to stop Sasikala becoming the next CM of the state.
On Sunday, Sasikala was elected as legislature party leader by members of legislative assembly during a party meeting, paving way for her to become the next CM of the state. Afterwards, O Panneerselvam gave his resignation as the state's CM. Panneerselvam's resignation was accepted by TN governor Vidhyasagar Rao on Monday.
Moreover, on Sunday, Rajinikanth attended a book launch function in Chennai, where he spoke about 'spiritualism' and 'power'.
"If anyone asks me to choose between fame, money, and spiritualism, I will choose spiritualism as it gives you a lot of power and I always love power," said Rajinikanth.
Many 'mistook' his liking for 'power' as an indication from the veteran actor that he desires to join 'politics'. However, Rajinikanth quickly clarified that 'power' has nothing to do with 'politics'.
