Rajinikanth and Kamal Hasan could not influence the famous artist in politics: Congress leaders


The Congress leader said that Rajinikanth and Kamal Hasan Mashuha’s film stars, however, could not influence the public opinion with their political views. Even though Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna are favorite stars in Hindi cinema, they proved to be a failure in politics.

Known for his remarks, veteran Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has commented on actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Hasan who have entered politics from the acting world. Aiyar said Rajinikanth and Kamal Hasan are marginal players in politics. These artists are unable to influence people’s point of view with their political views. Iyer has been nominated to three major committees of the Congress formed for the Tamil Nadu elections. Aiyar said actor Rajinikanth’s decision to enter electoral politics would have no effect as he was ready for the Tamil Nadu Assembly elections (Tamil Nadu Assembly elections).

The former Union Minister said that Kamal Hasan and Rajinikanth are nothing but political players on the margins. He said that the old days were different when MG Ramachandran (MGR), Shivaji Ganesan and even Jayalalithaa associated with the film world gave a revolutionary social message. Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi and CN Annadurai were associated with the world of cinema. Karunanidhi wrote a brilliant dialogue written by Anunadurai and presented it brilliantly. Karunanidhi played a similar role in the Tamil film world in the 1950s as social media was shaping politics in northern India.



The Congress leader said that Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan never used the movie as a political message. Both are very popular film stars but have not been able to influence public opinion with their political views. He argued that Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna were also favorite stars in Hindi cinema but failed in politics. The Congress leader said the same thing applies to the South. Rajinikanth recently decided not to enter electoral politics due to ill health.
