Only God, people behind me, says Rajinikanth

Top actor Rajinikanth dismissed claims that BJP was behind his political entry and said he was driven by only the God and the people.

“They are saying from the beginning that BJP is behind me. Only God is behind me and after that people are behind me. Okay,” he told reporters.

Rajinikanth has in December last announced he will launch a political party and contest the next assembly elections in Tamil Nadu and declared that “spiritual politics” needs to be ushered in, sans shades of any caste or religion.

Asked on his friend and actor politician Kamal Haasan saying that he had not expressed views on key issues like Cauvery, Rajinikanth denied it.

“I have given my view before. I have already said Cauvery Management Board should be set up following the Supreme Court order,” he said.
