Megastar Rajinikanth’s support to BJP candidate was the rumour :- India’s Megastar Rajinikanth is once again in the news because of the election in Tamil Nadu state. After the date for assembly by-poll in RK Nagar constituency was announced, everyone’s conversation as to who the popular actor will support.
Venkat Prabhu, son of the BJP candidate from the RK Nagar constituency, Gangai Amaran, tweeted a photo of his dad with the actor Rajnikanth.
BJP member Amaran is a good friend of Rajinikanth and had joined the BJP in the year 2014. The photo of the popular megastar Rajnikanth reportedly extending his support to the BJP candidate in the constituency went viral on social media causing more confusion over the political neutrality of the actor that he is maintained up until now.

But, on Wednesday morning, the megastar chose to clear the rumour when he tweeted that My support is for no one in the coming elections in the state.
After the death of Jayalalithaa in the month of December last year, RK Nagar seat was vacated. Factions owning allegiance to Sasikala and Panneerselvam have fielded their candidates from here.
In the last year’s assembly election, the BJP had performed very badly with the majority of its candidates losing their deposits.
