Neither Rajinikanth nor Kamal Haasan dared to establish political party until Jayalalithaa was alive. They both sensed a golden opportunity after the sudden demise of Amma but the path to CM Chair isn't as easy as they might have envisioned. 2019 Lok Sabha Polls offered a clear picture about the strength of political parties in Tamil Nadu. While AIADMK suffered due to the lack of a charismatic leader, Stalin-led DMK showed its potential to the fullest. None of the other parties including Kamal's Makkal Needhi Maiam failed to click.
Rajinikanth made the announcement about political debut couple of years. He, however, kept waiting for the 2021 Assembly Polls for getting on the battle field. By September next year, Thalaivar wishes to convert his Fan Clubs into Party Forums to give an organizational structure.
Strong buzz is doing rounds that parties of Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan will have a tie-up for 2021 Elections. This seems to be a measure to nullify the Vijay-effect..!
Recently, Political Strategist Prashant Kishor met Vijay to convey that survey conducted by him showed 28 percent people in Tamil Nadu wishes to see him as their Chief Minister. Vijay is the most charismatic star in Tamil Nadu. All of his three past films (Mersal, Sarkar, Bigil) were blockbusters. His Diwali Release 'Bigil' grossed Rs 300 crore Worldwide.
Vijay expressed his wish to foray into politics almost a decade ago. He might make his political entry either before 2021 or 2026 elections. So, Thalaivar and Ulaganayagan might unite to ensure Ilayathapathy doesn't have the last laugh.
