Narendra Modi's meeting with Rajinikanth seems to be turning out to be a positive development for the BJP, as a section of the Tamil superstar's fans have decided to support the saffron party.
The BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate had met Rajinikanth on April 13 at his Poes Garden residence in Chennai. The Tamil superstar had denied any political significance to it and claimed that it was just a casual meeting.
But political observers down played the superstar's statement and felt that their meeting would have some impact on the polls. It is now evident with a section of Rajinikanth fans endorsing Narendra Modi and claiming that they vote for the BJP. The state will go for single phase elections on April 24.
Rajinikanth fans club in Chennai is supporting the BJP. Saindapet Ravi, the chief of the superstar's fans club in the city, has claimed that they will support Narendra Modi this time. The cut-outs and banners of the actor with Modi are seen in some places.
The Endhiran, who is gearing up for the release of his Kochadaiiyaan, star had supported quite a few parties earlier. He even had expressed his wish to enter politics. But over the years, he has stayed away from politics. Now, he is sharing good rapport with all the leading regional parties.
