Superstar Rajinikanth recently visited Thoothukudi to meet the people affected in police firing during the long protest for the closure of Vedanta’s Sterlite Copper unit. The superstar made his way to meet the injured people at the hospital. Being his first political programme, a huge number of the crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of their favourite superstar. Interestingly, one of the young fans of Rajinikanth chased the car of the superstar from the airport. He chased until he got noticed by the superstar himself.
The lucky fan got noticed by the superstar, who stopped the car and even agreed to pose for a selfie. The fan posted the picture on his twitter account and captioned it as, “Now I can die peacefully. Today( 30-05-2018)morning I followed thalaivar from his house till the airport… While following, thalaivar saw me n stopped the car… I asked “thalaivaa orey Oru photo thalaiva” he said ” sure da kanna.”
