Earlier, while addressing fans in May for a similar photo session, Rajinikanth said he would choose the path of politics if God willing. The actor said, “God decides what we have to do in life at every phase. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I’m fulfilling my responsibility. If God willing, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won’t work with such people”. In November, he had told reporters that there was no hurry for him to enter politics.
