'Do your duty; Expect the results' is the new mantra preached by Rajinikanth, the superstar of Tamil film world.
In a hour-long interaction with his fans at the Raghavendra marriage hall, he announced plans to strengthen the fans' network by having proper offices in every district and keeping communication avenues open.
He raised the hopes of his politically ambitious fans promising them that the power of the youth behind him would be harnessed.
To a question about his future political career, the superstar said, "I will take a serious look at a possible political future only after the release of my forthcoming film Robot ('Enthiran' in Tamil) and not before."
"Capability, hard work and keen intellect are not enough to make a successful political career. Circumstances play a major part. Further, while nobody can force me into jumping into politics, nobody can prevent me from taking the plunge either," he said further.
"Like a forced marriage will not do a couple any good, forcing a political career on me when I am not ready will not work either. Though the nation's present political climate is not conducive for any constructive activity, I, however, do not rule out anything. I am always guided by god and my conscience," the superstar asserted.
Rajnikanth denied that he had ever apologized unconditionally to hooligans in Karnataka.
"I said something a few months back to pacify people in Karnataka because the situation so demanded. Since Tamil cinema assets are always attacked by those jealous of their reception in that state, I made strong remarks on the assaults in Bangalore. After all, I am human. However, my stand on violence is well known and has never been compromised," Rajnikanth added.
Ten main functionaries of fan clubs from each district participated strictly on the basis of invitation in this meet. The venue was under heavy police and private security guard.
