Twitterati is divided over Rajinikanth’s remark of the BJP is trying to paint him saffron. This remark of his didn’t go down well with some, while his supporters backed him. His detractors fired at him for taking a U-turn on BJP for their attempts to saffronise Tiruvalluvar and the economic slowdown who had earlier called him as the BJP bhakt. However, his supporters stated that Rajinknath will get into active politics but is yet to decide on the allies.
“Rajnikanth himself jumped into the tub full of saffron colour and now blaming BJP”, was one such tweet from @TholaRam. Another user @Pun_Starr and said: “Rajnikanth says, ‘BJP is trying to paint me saffron.’ Somewhere in heaven, Sardar Patel & Bhagat Singh laugh out loud”.
