Rajinikanth Issues Warning to Fans Against Indiscipline

0

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth today issued a stern warning to his fans against indulging in any kind of indiscipline, saying those violating his fans club’s code of conduct would be expelled from it.

The actor did not refer to any specific incident but the message comes close on the heels of his fans going into celebration mode over him hinting at a political entry, and pasting posters in parts of Chennai and elsewhere hailing him.

Some fans had also staged protests against fringe outfits opposing his political entry and tried to burn an effigy two days ago in retaliation to a group burning the actor’s effigy. In a letter addressed to his fans and released to the media, Rajinikanth said he has authorised V M Sudhakar, a senior functionary in the All India Rajinikanth Fans Welfare Club, to remove persons indulging in any kind of indiscipline from it.

“I am authorising V M Sudhakar to remove functionaries and members of our club from its primary membership if they are found maligning its discipline and reputation,” he said. The actor had last week met his fans and said the “system is rotten” despite the presence of “efficient” leaders like DMK’s M K Stalin and PMK’s Anbumani Ramadoss.

He had also asserted his Tamil identity, saying “naan pachai Tamizhan” (I am a pure Tamil), in an apparent bid to respond to his critics and pro-Tamil groups who bring up his Kannada origins.

0

Activists of a Tamil fringe group on Monday staged protests near actor Rajinikanth’s residence at Poes Garden here over indications the veteran actor could make his political debut.

Police deployed a large number of security personnel near his residence after the protest announcement by the Tamizhar Munnetra Padai group.

The police have set up barricades on the roads leading to his residence. Vehicles were allowed only after proper checking.
Police stopped the activists from trying to march to the actor’s residence.

“Following reports that members of a fringe group were planning to protest in front of Rajinikanth’s house, we requested for police protection. Everything is under control as of now,” a source close to Rajinikanth told IANS.

One of the protesters said Rajinikanth is from Karnataka and should not enter Tamil Nadu politics.

The protest comes after Rajinikanth, while addressing his fan club members here last week, had hinted about his political aspirations. The actor was criticised over his not being a Tamilian.

The 67-year-old has expressed disappointment over some Tamilians spreading hatred on social media.

“I feel sorry for some Tamil people spreading hatred on social media. Never thought they will stoop so low,” Rajinikanth had said last week during an interaction with fans.

His comment irked members of Tamizhar Munnetra Padai, who demand an apology.

The actor has insisted that he is very much a Tamilian.

“I lived in Karnataka for 23 years and in Tamil Nadu for 43 years. Although I came as a Marathi from Karnataka, you people nurtured me, made me a true Tamilian,” he said.

He has said he will take a decision on joining politics when the time comes.

Speaking on politics, Rajnikanth said there were good leaders but the system was corrupted.

“We have good leaders like (M.K.) Stalin, Anbumani (Ramadoss) and Seeman. But what do we do when the system is bad, democracy has deteriorated. This system needs to be changed and a change has to be brought in the minds of people, than only will the country flourish,” he said.

Addressing a large gathering on the last day of the interaction with fans, he said to thunderous applause: “I have my profession, my job. I have some responsibilities and you have your jobs. Go back to your places and do your job. Let’s meet when it’s time for (political) war.”

Earlier this week, he had said: “If it’s God’s will, I will join politics.”

Rajinikanth later tweeted: “Extremely happy after meeting my fans. Memorable and unforgettable.”

On the career front, he is gearing up for the shoot of his next Tamil yet-untitled film with director Pa. Ranjith.

On Saturday, Sundar Shaekhar, who claims to be the son of Haji Mastan, sent a legal notice to Rajinikanth, requesting him to not portray his father as a “smuggler and don”.

“You are depicting my godfather and a well-known national political leader as a ‘smuggler and underworld don’, which are highly unacceptable and I strongly oppose such misrepresentation of my godfather,” Sundar said in the notice.

To be produced by Dhanush, the film will have music by Santhosh Narayanan.

Prabhas to be the highest paid actor after Rajinikanth ?

0

When Prabhas was signed up for the titular role in Baahubali series five years back, many felt that the macho actor is risking his career by dedicating such a long time span for a single project. But, his dedication has reaped rich benefits and he is now a pan Indian superstar because of the global success of Baahubali franchise. He is now the most sought after actor all over India and his popularity has fetched him a huge fan base in many territories.

As he dedicated nearly five years for the magnum opus, he charged a hefty amount as remuneration. Sources say that he was paid a whopping 25 Crores as remuneration for each part of Baahubali. Accordingly to the latest reports in media, Prabhas has hiked his remuneration after the success of Baahubali by 5 Crores and will now take home 30 Crores for his upcoming projects.

If this turns out to be true, Prabhas will be the highest paid actor in South after Rajinikanth. Superstar Mahesh Babu is being paid 25 Crores for his ongoing bilingual in Murugadoss direction. Now, Prabhas seems to have taken Mahesh Babu’s place with the grand success of Baahubali.

With the pan India fame he achieved after Baahubali, the makers of his upcoming films are looking to release them simultaneously in Hindi and Tamil along with Telugu.

Prabhas will soon commence shooting for his multilingual action drama Saaho which is being made with a staggering budget.
