The meeting bears immense significance in the present context, where Rajnikanth is under immense pressure to enter politics.
Later Advani admitted that they had had a long discussion about the current political affairs and that he had requested Rajini to extend his political support to the BJP in the forthcoming General Elections. But, sources reveal that though Rajini refused to give his support to any particular party he did convey his wishes to the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate.
Though Rajini has been resisting such demands he had recently announced that he would undertake a tour of the state to meet his fans and has also promised that he would meet them frequently. Rajnikanth's office bearers are tight lipped about what transpired in his meeting with Advani.
