Hyderabad: Social media users are sharing a quote that is being attributed to Tamil actor Rajinikanth. The superstar seems to be praising Telangana Chief Minister KCR.

The quote reads, "Ten people having to unite to defeat KCR should prove to you who is the strongest. That's the kind of leader Telangana needs."

Fact Check:

The claim that the quote is by Rajinikanth is false. The Tamil actor has made no such remarks about KCR.

NewsMeter did not find any news reports about Rajinikanth making such remarks. If the superstar had made such remarks about KCR, the media (especially the Telugu media) would have certainly reported it.

We found no such posts on Rajinikanth's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Further, the actor quit politics and dissolved Rajni Makkal Mandram, the political party launched in 2018. It was morphed into the 'Rajinikanth Rasigar Narpani Mandram' or the Rajinikanth Fans Welfare Forum. (Source: NDTV)

Hence, the claim that the quote is by Tamil superstar Rajinikanth false. He has made no such remarks about KCR.

Claim Review:Quote by Tamil actor Rajnikanth saying Telangana needs a leader like KCR.
