Even as the fans of Rajinikanth have started a membership drive following the ‘order’ of the superstar, celebrities too are lining up to join his proposed political party.
Raju Mahalingam, creative head of Lyca Productions, has stepped down from the production company to join Rajini’s party.
“Firstly, I’m a fan of Rajinikanth sir since my childhood. Also, during the production of ‘2.0’, I’ve watched him closely for three years. He is known for his simplicity, honesty and straight-forwardness. I think that is the need of the hour for the political scenario that is prevailing in Tamil Nadu at present. So, when Rajini sir announced his decision to form a political party, I decided to join his political journey,” he said.
Meanwhile, Raghava Lawrence has said he would hold a press meet in Chennai on Thursday to announce himself as a ‘kaavalan’ of Rajinikanth.
On Sunday, while announcing his political entry, Rajini said he did not need cadres, but protectors (kaavalargal) to cleanse the system.
