I Surrender

Post courtesy 'rasigar sigaram' Kannan Swamy

After seeing the 5
katalaigal that Rajni has issued for his fans, any keen observer can see the pattern to his behavior of surrendering to whoever is in a power position. One of the 5 request to his fans was 'Do not include any political statements in your posters or banners'. To put all this into perspective, we need to rewind back to the last elections in 2 parts -

Parliament Elections -This is what Rajni declared - "BJP is all set to sweep the elections based on my visits to the North Indian states. I don't know about the situation in Tamil Nadu. I shall vote for BJP and I leave it to my fans to vote for which ever party that they like. They know whom they shouldn't vote for (this was a missive against PMK)". We all know the result of that election, BJP lost power in an ignominious way while in alliance with AIADMK they lost all 40 seats in TN. Thanks to Rajni and his offer of support!

Assembly elections - His fans under the command of Rajni worked against PMK candidates but to no avail. PMK won more than a fair number of seats that they had contested.

Present Day Situation - Given his past relationship with PMK, Rajni is a worried man as PMK men are biding their time to exact revenge. This could be a deja vu of what happened with Baba in Panruti when the PMK men ran away with the film roll. We all saw the reaction from the 'brave paper tiger' fans of Rajni for that incident - They were not sighted for few months after that incident as they all went into hiding. In order not to have a repeat of that incident during the release of his new movie, Rajni comes out with a request to his fans that they do not include any political statements in their posters or banners and not even indulge in any celebrations at
the releasing theatres.

After all the years of basking in the glory of the 'paper proclamations' from his 'paper tiger fans', why is Rajni suddenly asking them to refrain from including political statements. This just goes to show that Rajni has no principles only vested interests. When he is not doing any movie, he emboldens his fans to work for and against (he cannot make up his mind) political parties. But if it could affect his movie, then he gets them to wave the white flag. His next step would be to go to Kalaignar to wish him on his birthday and try to get some salugaigal. Then probably a statement appeasing Ramadoss and Thirumavalavan. I am certain we will see more acts of surrender in the coming days and weeks from Rajni to various political parties and entities. What a MAN or should we just call him 'Super POTTAI'?

  • Karthikeyan,
    Disgusting piece of shite.
    Did you see the hub? Collective self delusion or what?

    No new *confirmed* updates. Nothing has been decided for sure, be it the release date or the next project

  • To add to your points,

    In the late 1990s, he had some benamis to produce his movies, that way the entire profits will come to him and he will 'distribute' to those paper producers some peanuts. After the political fallout with PMK, he's asking some leading production houses to produce his film so that he can hide safely if any problem arises... Ambuttu dhairiyam!

    Many people comment on his off-screen simplicity, good heartedness, honesty, selfless nature etc etc. But have a glimpse here...

    When the entire tamil film industry was taking out a procession in neyveli, he staged a fasting drama in chennai and said that he will start an organization for inter-linking of rivers and will give 1 crore for this. This received enormous media attention.

    After a few months, he gave a press release stating that since the prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee is looking into the same issue, he will close his organization!! Not many know abt this till date I guess. Andha 1 crore um micham!!!

    idellam oru pozhappu!!
