Actor Rajinikanth on Monday said that he has no plans to enter politics in the future. He dissolved Rajini Makkal Mandram.
"I don't have plans to enter politics in future," said actor Rajinikanth.
The superstar held a discussion with the office bearers of Rajini Makkal Mandram before arriving at the decision. He started taking an active part in politics in 2017.
"I have decided to dissolve Rajini Makkal Mandram. The office-bearers of the Rajinikanth Makkal Mandram would continue to be part of the Rajinikanth Fan Club Association that will involve itself in public service," the actor said.
On December 3, 2020, the actor had said that he would launch his party in January 2021 ahead of the Assembly elections. However, during the last week of December last year, he did a u-turn and announced that he would not join politics.
Since then, several functionaries had joined political parties including the DMK.
Rajinikanth is one of India's most popular actors with more than 175 films since 1975, mostly in the Tamil and Telugu languages.
