On the last day of fan meet-and-greet in Chennai, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth expressed disdain over people taking to social media to mock him over the meet and his intent to join politics.

"We have good leaders like Stalin (MK), Anbumani (Ramadoss) and Seeman. We should change the system".

During the event, Rajinikanth further said, "Both "support" and "oppose" is a part of the system. Till then let us be patient", the actor said and kept his fans guessing without making it clear whether he meant elections as war. I will call you when there's a war. "If you all throw me out, I will go and fall only in the Himalayas and not in any other state". So go back to your places and look after your families and attend to your duties.

Shooting down the outsider tag, Rajinikanth, a man of Marathi roots and a native of Karnataka, proclaimed himself to be a true-blue Tamilian despite his origins from Karnataka.

The Tamil actor - born Shivajirao Gaekwad and raised in Karnataka before moving to Tamil Nadu to start working as a bus conductor before he made his entry into films - was meeting his fans in Kodambakkam in Tamil Nadu when he made these remarks.

Going by his comments, the charismatic actor is likely to float a new party, which has made existing parties such as the BJP, AIADMK and DMK nervous. And it could be just around the corner, for those who have watched him for decades believe that this is the biggest hint that he has ever given indicating that he will join politics. The BJP high command has also been trying for a long time to woo Rajinikanth to join their party but the legend has softly rejected.

The Royal Free, in a statement, said it used patient data because of its "safety-first" approach to developing Streams. Such testing is essential, but there must be clarity about the regulatory framework and transparency for patients.

Speaking on politics, Rajnikanth said there were good leaders but the system was corrupted. I am 66 years old now.

But Rajinikanth's latest ambivalent statements on the possibility of his political entry has triggered a buzz in various circles, though this is not for the first time.

His faction's leader and a former minister K.P Munuswamy said it was natural for Rajinikanth to talk about politics because there was now a vacuum caused by the death of Jayalalithaa and ill health of Karunanidhi.

The comments set tongues waging about his intentions on joining politics. I grew up with you.

On May 15, he had said that he had made a mistake by supporting a political alliance 21 years ago.
