Expelled AIADMK interim General Secretary VK Sasikala called on South Indian superstar Rajinikanth at his Poes Garden residence in Chennai.

Rajinikanth's wife Latha was also present during the meeting that took place on the evening of Monday, 6 December.

Sources in Sasikala's camp told IANS that she had met Rajinikanth to congratulate him on winning the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke award for lifetime contribution to Indian cinema.


Meeting Sparks Discussions About Sasikala's Comeback to Active Politics

Rajinikanth had announced the launch of his political party on 29 December 2020, but later backtracked, citing poor health and the COVID-19 pandemic situation. He had later disbanded his political outfit, Rajini Makkal Mandram (RMM), and openly announced that he had no intentions to enter politics even at a later stage.

However, the meeting between Rajinikanth and Sasikala, a key aide of late Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa had sparked discussions in political circles as the latter is aiming at a comeback in the AIADMK and is engaging with party cadres and lower-level functionaries across the state.
