Protests against Rajinikanth joining politics
A small section of a pro-Tamil outfit, called Tamizhar Munnetra Padai, is protesting against actor Rajinikanth's decision to join politics. Security arrangements outside the actor’s house have been increased.
The protesters burnt an effigy of the actor and raised slogans against him. This is because questions have been raised about whether Rajinikanth is from Tamil Nadu or Karnataka.
On the other hand, fans of the superstar have dismissed these protests and said that the actor has every right to join politics if he wants to.
Rajinikanth has clarified that he is from a village in Tamil Nadu and not Karnataka.
