Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, known professionally as Rajnikanth, announced on his personal twitter about his decision to quit politics today. Rajnikanth has been suffering from blood pressure issues for a long time and has been hospitalized earlier.
“With extreme sadness I say that I can’t enter politics. I alone know the pain I went through while announcing this decision.” he wrote on twitter. He also apologized to his fans for dissapointing them by not being able to launch his political party as scheduled due to his poor health.
He was discharged from Appollo Hospitals, Hyderabad two days ago with prescribed bed rest. “I see this health complication (hospitalisation) as a warning given to me by God” he said.
