The two political parties who are currently ruling and who ruled previously the ADMK and the DMK have started their own media houses to multiply their propaganda on the mass media. Both Jaya TV and Kalainyar TV played a major role during the election campaigning seasons where they broadcasted each and every bit of the party and the leaders' movement so that the cadres and people can know what's the latest in that party. Even DMDK chief Vijayakanth for that matter started his own channel named Captain TV as soon as he entered politics so that they could have their own mass media propaganda machinery.
Falling on the same line of the Dravidian parties, the superstar actor who made his political announcement during last December have registered three names and logos
with the National, Trademarks registry to comply with the Intellectual Property laws in the country.
It is basically to register the name and logo under intellectual property rights so that none can use the name of the logo in the future, VM Sudhakar, who manages everything of Rajinikanth had applied to register, two names and logos have been accepted according to the information available on the official website of trademark registry.
Two names with logos named Rajini TV and Thalaivar TV which is registered under the category of television broadcasting network and which will have entertainment programs, television shows, music programmes and comedy shows while the other one is registered under the category of transmission of news and current affairs under class 38 and 41.
However this is just the basic framework to start any media house, but they have not approached the ministry of I & B seeking satellite rights or broadcast certificate which is a long process, sources within Rajinikanth Makkal mandram say that they do not have an idea to start a channel now.
This information started spreading in an undated letter pad of Rajini Makkal mandram with the sign of Rajinikanth himself which was initially told fake by his own team. They then agreed that it has been registered and they do not know how this information came out to the limelight. But as of now, it was confirmed by us that the names and logos have been registered. But even Rajinikanth or his camp is not sure when they would be going to move further to start the channel.
Sources also claim that Rajinikanth is been misquoted by many medias & the statements have been twisted according to their vested interests & hence they have an idea to start their own media outlet to propagate in the way they want without depending on other channels like how Kalainyar TV & Jaya TV are doing.
