Thalaiva has rejected that the meet will pave the way for him to join politics. “No, no. Absolutely there is no politics,” he said.
His fans have often asked their ‘Thalaiva’ to take the political plunge, even as he has been wooed by many political parties on account of his mass appeal. Invitations have been sent to respective fan clubs to attend the various sessions allotted to them between May 15 and 19.
The actor was slated to hold a similar meeting last month, but had postponed it on a request made by fans for individual photographs for which more number of group interactions was required.
The last such meeting with fans was in 2009, post his ‘Sivaji’ success.
