Rahil Nora Chopra : Amit Shah has encouraged Rajinikanth to launch a new political party, which will work with BJP in future. Now Rajinikanth is set to launch that and soon. The actor-turned-politician does not want to lose the opportunity of testing his popularity beyond Tamil Nadu. Born in a Marathi-speaking family as Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, raised and having worked in Kannada-speaking Bangalore, before making it big in Chennai, Rajinikanth would certainly aim to cash in on his popularity in Karnataka as well. His recent visit to Bangalore to meet his elder brother created quite the buzz.
