Rajinikanth, who is testing waters before entering politics, will soon have the second round of discussion with his fans. The Tamil superstar will reportedly meet the members from his fans association in the last week of December.

The actor will be meeting his fans between December 26 and 31 at his Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Kodambakkam, Chennai. "Thalaivar plans to meet his fans for a photo session for six days from December 26 and we are preparing ourselves for the event," Deccan Chronicle quotes a source as saying.

The daily adds that Rajinikanth has applied for the necessary permission from the police department.

Rajinikanth had the first round of talks with his fans in May. The members from 17 districts that include Cuddalore, Trichy, Tirunelvelli, Chidambaram, Ramanathapuram, Pondicherry, Dindigal, Sivagangai and Karaikkal had met the superstar.

In the second round, he plans to meet 1,000 persons a day between 8 am and 3 pm. Rajinikanth will be taking a firm stand during the meeting and most likely to announce his next step in politics.

The superstar's elder brother Satyanarayana Rao Gaikwad had recently stated that the meeting would happen in January. Now, it seems like the plans have undergone changes and Rajinikanth might have a good news for his fans in the beginning of 2018 itself.

Rajinikanth, who has been nurturing his political dreams for over two decades, apparently decided to test the waters following the death of former Tamil Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and due to ailing DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi.
