Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has once again taken to Twitter to make a scathing remark, this time on Tamil superstar Rajinikanth whom the politician refers to as 'RK 420'.

Rajya Sabha MP Swamy tweeted a photo of the famous Rajinikanth 'gambling' in a US casino and suggested that the Enforcement Directorate probe into the sources of his wealth.

According to reports, the recent tweet is Swamy's sharpest attack on Rajinikanth so far since the star dropped hints of possibly joining politics.

Although Rajinikanth has not out rightly stated that he will be joining politics, Swamy has already questioned credentials as a “Tamizhan” alleging that his political debut would “spell disaster”.

"He has no future in politics. A new generation of very educated Tamilians who are assertive, influential now want national politics to come to Tamil Nadu. He is unsuitable for becoming the chief minister of Tamil Nadu," Swamy had said.

During interactions with fans in May, Rajinikanth has said that the political system needed "cleansing" and that if he took the political plunge, he would not allow "wrong people" to join him.

The trend of actors and former actors joining politics is well-established, with famous faces such as Hema Malini, Jaya Bachchan, Paresh Rawal and Raj Babbar all venturing into politics. The late Tamil Nadu chief Minister Jayalalithaa is perhaps one of the most famous examples of an actress who joined politics and was much loved by the public.
