The political developments in Tamil Nadu come after the death of AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa’s death last December which appeared to have left a political vacuum in the state. Rajinikanth’s entry into the political arena comes after hinting it for months, including in May when he said, “If God wills it, I will enter politics tomorrow”.

“Ultimate Boss” Rajinikanth said that he will field candidates for all the 234 assembly seats in Tamil Nadu. The 67-year-old Tamil cinema legend also said that if his party comes to power and fails to fulfill its promises within three years, they will resign.
