Chennai: Rajinikanth’s call for a “political revolution” in Tamil Nadu has found high-profile subscribers from the tinsel town – a popular actor and top official of a firm that is producing the superstar’s next flick “2.0”
Actor Raghava Lawrence and Raju Mahalingam of Lyca Productions have come out in the open to pledge their support to Rajinikanth’s political venture.
Riaz K Ahmed, Rajinikanth’s Public Relations Officer, took to Twitter to announce Raju Mahalingam’s decision to join the yet-to-be launched party.
“@rajumahalingam resigns from his Creative Head post in @LycaProductions and joins #Rajinikanth's political journey,” Ahmed tweeted. He also quoted Mahalingam as saying: “I have worked with Mr. Rajinikanth for the last three years and I was attracted to his personality and vision. So I decided to join his journey.”
Lawrence, an ardent fan of Rajinikanth, also said he would join the star’s party, but asked media to wait for a formal announcement from him that is expected later this week.
