Although known to be critical of former Chief Minister J Jayalalitha, Rajinikanth said he admired her ‘courage’ and ‘determination’.

When asked about the political climate in TN, he said ‘ leadership’ is the need of the hour in the State and that people should be told who they are.”They have so much potential, they are good, hard-working, intelligent people. They have forgotten what they are, their capabilities, their strengths, their knowledge. Everything is there, but it is not channelled properly. We need to do that now,” he said.
