South superstar-turned-politician Rajinikanth has said the BJP “is attempting to saffronise” him but he “will not be trapped” — a comment seen by many as an attempt to end speculation he may tie up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party. Referring to a recent controversy triggered by Tamil Nadu BJP, which released photos of ancient Tamil poet Tiruvalluvar dressed in saffron, the 68-year-old actor said he, like Tiruvalluvar, “would not get trapped”.
“The BJP has not made any offer to me to join them. Attempts (are being) made to paint me with BJP colour. Like Tiruvalluvar, attempts (are being) made to saffronise me. I will not get trapped, nor will Tiruvallur,” he said today, responding to a question about Tamil Nadu BJP leader Pon Radhakrishnan reportedly inviting him to join the party.

This statement made the fans of the actor very happy and what gained the attention of them more is the moment when Rajinikanth did a “Superstar moment” in front of the reporters. After answering to the reporters, Rajinikanth tried to leave the place but when the reporters kept calling him to answer more questions, Rajinikanth unexpectedly turned real fast to his right side which reminded the actor’s fans about his “Unique Swag” in his movies.
Check out some of their reactions below :

The actor’s remark about the BJP trying to “saffronise” him were made after actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan and he unveiled a bust of late Tamil film director K Balachander at the Makkal Needhi Maiam chief’s production offices in Chennai.
