Will Tamil Nadu again vote for ‘TAMIL SUPERSTARS’?
The political balance of Tamil Nadu politics has taken a jolt after the demise of former CM, Jayalalithaa, who once was a heroine on the celluloid. Her guru, former CM of Tamil Nadu MGR who is often referred as ‘god’ is also a Tamil Superstar. Even Karunanidhi is related to the film industry. But in the last decade, the inflow of film stars into the Tamil politics has slowed down.
But the demise of Jayalalithaa once again created enough void for the silver screen stars to make their way into the political sphere. Kamal Hassan has officially confirmed about his entry into politics with a new party, while Rajinikanth has confirmed his political entry, but unsure whether he would sail in his own boat or join BJP.
The surprising fact is that the next generation heroes, Vijay and Vishal are also looking forward to joining politics. While Vijay’s movies raise questions about governance, Vishal has been in the target zone for the center, after he came in support of Vijay’s Mersal movie, that became a controversy owing to the dialogues relating to GST. Vishal is known as a ‘common man’ and ‘life savior’ during hard times in TN. The odds are high that both would be a part of the politics very soon. The recent IT raids on Vishal’s production company are a clear display of Center’s Power and Authority to pulverize anyone who turns against them.
