Rajinikanth said that he takes the recent development over his health condition as a warning from God and he will not go ahead with his plans to take the political plunge for the Tamil Nadu assembly elections next year.
The latest development comes days after Rajinikanth was discharged from a hospital in Hyderabad where he was undergoing treatment after suffering from high blood pressure, severe hypertension and exhaustion.
He said the movie shooting got postponed resulting in the loss of crores of rupees and jobs for many.
"All because of my health condition. I am looking at this as a warning given to me by the God," Rajinikanth said.
The actor also said it is not possible to bring out an uprising amongst the people campaigning via social media after floating a party.
"I have to address public meetings, meet lakhs of people," he said.
According to him, even in a group of 120 persons (movie shooting team) he was in hospital for three days owing to some people testing positive for coronavirus. And now there is a new virus mutant.
Rajinikanth said as he is taking immunosuppressants, anti-coronavirus vaccine may not be effective and if his health gets affected his fellow political passengers might face various problems.
"Hence with much regret I am saying that I am not in a position to start political party and enter politics. Only I know the pain when I announce this," Rajinikanth said.
The actor said without entering politics he will serve the people.
