Rajinikanth discharged from hospital, political party launch unlikely to be postponed

The December 31 launch of superstar Rajinikanth's political party is unlikely to be postponed, despite doubts about his health. Tamilaruvi Manian, the actor's close aide, told Times Now that the launch will take place according to the schedule from now on and expressed confidence that the party will win the upcoming elections in Tamil Nadu.

He said many in the state were afraid of Rajinikanth's political entry, but added that the party would contest and succeed in the upcoming Tamil Nadu elections.

The South Indian superstar announced his intention to launch a political party earlier this month and said a further announcement will take place in the near future. The much awaited announcement is now scheduled to take place on 311 December.
