New Delhi: Following his announcement to launch a political party on Sunday, superstar Rajinikanth on Monday released a video urging his fans to come together under one umbrella and bring about a 'good change' in Tamil Nadu politics.

He also launched an Android app Rajini Mandram on Google Play.

The superstar asked the fans to get themselves registered on his new website rajinimandram.com. He thanked his fans for giving a 'rousing reception to my political avatar'.

"It is important that we bring together my registered and unregistered fan clubs and those in general public who seek a political change," said Rajinikanth in his video message.

Elaborating the procedure to get oneself registered, the actor said one can visit the rajinimandram.org website and enter one's name and voter ID to get themselves registered.

The actor also sought the help of his own supporters to widen the base: "One man cannot achieve that, all of you people have to stand with me. This is no easy task,” said the actor.

Announcing his plans to launch his political party, Rajinikanth laid out his vision of what kind of an army he wishes to create.

“If a party has to thrive, it depends on the cadre. Party members are the root, the branch and the trunk - the cadre is everything. They go on to become counsellor, MLA and MP, minister even CM - but I don't want cadre, I want vigilantes,” he said.

The app, web page and the official letter head of the 'mandram' which carried the actor's audio-visual message in print featured prominently the association's logo.

The logo is a 'baba mudra' against a blue backdrop encircled by a serpent in black.

The mudra has significance in yoga and it features the ring and middle fingers held by the thumb even as the little and index fingers are in an upright position.

In Hindu spiritual tradition, the serpent is a symbol representing awakened consciousness through yogic pursuits.

"Truthfulness, hardwork, growth," and "think good, speak good, do good and only good will happen," are the slogans featured on the letter head, app and web page.

The charismatic actor has said this will be the guiding line for his proposed party.
