Just yesterday Rajinikanth was hailed by his industry peer Kamal Haasan for coming out and speaking against the double taxation by the Tamil Nadu government. While the theatre owners have called for an indefinite strike after GST and the entertainment tax were levied on them, the industry has been in a state of shock. Buzz is that this strike is costing the theatres a whopping Rs 20 crore every day. And that's not all with movie releases lined up, R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi's Vikram Vedha will be the first casualty. That's not all Bollywood too will face a backlash and films like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Sridevi's Mom film's box office figures too will be affected. However, it's not this that has sent everyone bonkers at the moment, but a tweet by politician Subramanian Swamy that has taken Twitter by storm. The senior leader took to his micro-blogging page to attack Thalaiva. In fact, his post that has a picture of Rajinikanth at a casino gambling has become a hot debate on social media. Swamy has questioned Rajinikanth and asked for a probe to be carried out on the actor. Here's what Subramanian Swamy wrote:
Of course for those of you who have walked in late into this debate and discussion kick started yesterday when Rajinikanth stood up in support of his film industry against the government and asked them to reconsider the double taxation. The 2.0 actor wrote:
Rajinikanth's this statement was widely talked about and many were glad that the superstar had finally come out in the open. In fact, there was also buzz that the veteran actor who has shied away from politics would be making a grand entry into politics. Some even suggested how various political parties are vying for his approval to join them. This jibe by Subramanian Swamy however came as a shocker to many. Especially since Rajini has been in great terms with his party. Does this hint that something has gone wrong between Rajinikanth and Swamy? Well, whatever the case the actor's fans got defensive and questioned Subramnian Swamy's tweet against the actor.
