Vijay’s dad makes a request to Rajini & Kamal

Veteran filmmaker S A Chandrasekhar, who is the father of Vijay, has appealed to Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan to join hands in politics and work together for the welfare of the people of Tamil Nadu.

Speaking at a concert by maestro Ilayaraja to mark the birthday of Kamal, the founder-president of Makkal Needhi Maiam, in Chennai on Sunday night, SAC said, “I am a fan of Rajinikanth. I was waiting for Rajini’s political entry.”

He added: “But Kamal has entered before him. I request Rajini to enter politics soon. Both Rajini and Kamal should work together in politics and do good to people.”

All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi president and actor R Sarath Kumar reacted to SAC’s remarks at the event itself and said, “I would have reacted to S A Chandrasekhar’s comments if this is Assembly. Since this is not Assembly, I don’t want to react to it.”

In his address at the event, superstar Rajinikanth said Edappadi K Palaniswami becoming the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu was nothing short of a miracle.

“When he became the CM, many said the rule would not continue for even some months. But it is continuing. So, miracles happened yesterday, they are happening today, and they will happen tomorrow too,” he said amid thundering applause.

Last week, Palaniswami continued to target Rajinikanth on his leadership vacuum remark and dismissed the actor’s statement as trivial. “Is Rajini a political leader? He is only an actor. Did any political leader say there is leadership vacuum,” Palaniswami asked.
