"Will Rajnikanth quit Politics? Rajnikanth Says he disowns the note and the news about his health is true".
A letter said to be written by superstar Rajinikanth is making rounds in Tamil Nadu's political sector since yesterday. The letter stated that he was staying away from politics because of his age, ill-health, and uncertainty. Due to Covid 19, he is unable to stay active in politics, due to the fear of getting infected by Covid 19.
Rajinikanth has responded in this regard. That letter is not mine. But the news of my health in it is true. It is true that doctors too have been advised to take care of his health.
Asked whether Rajinikanth would stay away from politics, he said that he was in talks with members of his Rajani Makkal Mandram to decide his political future. Along with this, Rajni must stay away from politics before he can officially enter politics.
