Rajini to start own TV channel before plunging into politics full-fledged
In an attempt to strengthen his political foothold in Tamilnadu, Superstar Rajinikanth is planning to launch his own electronic media house before plunging into politics full-fledged.
After witnessing the fiasco of Chiranjeevi in politics, for which one of the main reasons is the lack of media support, all the politicians feel that having their own TV channel is mandatory. In Tamilnadu, almost all the political parties have their channels supporting them. It is not a surprise that Rajinikanth felt the same way.
Rajini Makkal Mandram, the launch vehicle of Rajini’s political party, has already begun the process of registering trademarks for the channels to be launched. The names being considered for the channels are ‘Thalaiva TV’, ‘Rajini TV’, ‘Superstar TV’. The selection of the name is not finalized and the party is taking steps to get trademark protection for all three.
As per sources, the main reason for launching his own TV channel is that mainstream media has often misquoted Rajini’s statements in the past and the channel is a way to reach out to people without any misleading.
