Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Thursday said he supports ‘no one’ in the fray for the April 12 by-election to the RK Nagar assembly constituency in Chennai.

The by-election is being held to fill the vacancy caused by the death of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

The superstar said in a tweet, “My support is for no one in the coming election.”

Rajinikanth’s statement comes days after music composer and BJP candidate for the bypoll, Gangai Amaran, called on him.

Amaran’s son Venkat Prabhu had tweeted on Sunday that the actor had wished him ‘success’ in his political innings during the brief meeting.

“Today our thalaivar @superstarrajini met and wished my dad for his political victory in #RKNagarByElection #happyson #GangaiAmaran,” Prabhu’s tweet had said.

He had also posted a picture of his father with Rajinikanth at the latter’s residence.
