It was an announcement that his fans had been waiting for years. And superstar Rajinikanth did not disappoint them. On Sunday morning, Rajinikanth announced his entry into politics and the formation of his own political party.

One of the first to react to Rajinikanth's dramatic announcement was none other than actor Kamal Haasan.

Kamal tweeted, "I congratulate my brother Rajini for his social consciousness and his political entry. Welcome welcome."
