Former Supreme Court judge and former Chief Justice of the Madras High Court Markandey Katju took to his Facebook page to share his opinion about Superstar Rajinikanth’s recent comments on his entry to politics.
I have a high opinion of south Indians, but I just cannot understand their stupid deification and idolization of film stars.
I remember when I was in Annamalai University ( 1967-68 ) I once went with some Tamilian friends to see a movie starring Shivaji Ganesan. At the very beginning of that movie the feet of Shivaji Ganesan were shown ( and only the feet ) and the audience went hysterical.
Now it seems many south Indians are crazy about Rajnikanth, and some even want him to enter politics and be the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu
But what is there in Rajnikanth? Has he any solutions to the massive problems of poverty, unemployment, malnourishment, lack of healthcare, farmers distress, etc? I think he has none. Then why do people want him in politics? Like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth has nothing in his head.”
