Actor Rajinikanth on Friday said he extended “full support” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ mission.
Cleanliness was godliness, the 66-year-old said on Twitter, backing the initiative under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
The Kabali actor has been hinting for some time that he might take the political plunge.
Rajinikanth’s tweet comes a day after film star Kamal Haasan met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal here, amid indications that he, too, might join politics.
Kamal Haasan was invited by Kejriwal to join politics to fight corruption and communalism. Kamal had said earlier that he would be willing to work with Rajinikanth if the superstar ever decided to enter politics.
The fortnight from 15 September till Gandhi Jayanti is being celebrated as ‘Swachhta Hi Seva’. Celebrities such as Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma and Sachin Tendulkar have also pledged their support to the Swachhta movement. (PTI)
