The speculation of superstar Rajinikanth might enter politics is making rounds everywhere. What will be the advice from the icon of the icons Amitabh Bachchan to superstar and his ‘follower’ Rajinikanth find out.

As the speculation of Rajinikanth entering politics gains momentum with people calculating different possibilities, a media report on Thalaiva meeting his idol Amitabh Bachchan to seek advice on the same makes it interesting.


Rajinikanth is a true follower and admirer of Mr. Bachchan, The superstar owns his stardom to megastar Amitabh Bachchan and media reports claim that Rajinikanth will meet Mr. Bachchan in couple of weeks to discuss his political plans before taking the plunge, Rajinikanth wants to explore possibilities as he is no hurry and he trusts Mr. Bachchan’s opinion.

Point is, Mr. Bachchan didn’t have a rewarding experience in his stint as a politician which started with a record breaking win over former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, H N Bahuguna (said to be one of the highest margins in India's election history where Mr. Bachchan garnered 68% of votes) from his hometown of Allahabad, later was marred with controversies like ‘Bofors’ that forced Mr. Bachchan to quit politics calling it a 'cesspool.'

Mr. Bachchan is now clear from the Bofors allegations but the proceedings took 25 years in giving Mr. Bachchan a clean chit.

Politics in today’s times has changed and it’s more volatile but Amitabh Bachchan and Rajiniknath are the same that’s why they are living legends and biggest pillars.

Mr. Bachchan’s tryst with politics has been painfully sad; we wonder what positive advice will his friend, follower and admirer Rajiniknath will get.
