Megastar Rajinikanth on Tuesday announced that he won’t be entering politics, citing health reasons. He will continue to work for people, Rajinikanth said.

In a three-page statement posted on Twitter, the actor has apologised for not launching the party.

“Only I know the pain of announcing this decision,” he said, adding that he will serve people without entering electoral politics.

The 70-year-old actor was expected to float his political party in January 2021. The megastar’s political advisor Tamilaruvi Manian had said their party will fight on all 234 seats in the next Assembly elections.

Meanwhile, two days after being admitted to the hospital due to fluctuating blood pressure and exhaustion, Rajinikanth on Sunday was discharged from Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad.

The ‘Kabali’ actor had been shooting for ‘Annaatthe’ in Hyderabad for the last few days. The shoot halted after crew members tested positive for COVID-19.
