In a speech, well-known director Bharathiraja opposed Rajinikanth's entry into Tamil Nadu politics. Bharathiraja, who made his debut in the Tamil film industry in 1977, is known for realistic and sensitive portrayal of rural life in his films. The BJP has been trying to woo the superstar into its fold. Recently, BJP national secretary H Raja said Rajinikanth is a popular personality and is welcome to join the saffron party. Addressing his fans, Rajinikanth said all the men in the country would turn up for their motherland when the situation warranted.
