Superstar Rajinikanth met the Thackeray family and the photo went viral
New Delhi: South Indian superstar Rajinikanth met the Thackeray family at their ‘Madhosree’ residence on Saturday afternoon.
Dressed in a simple shirt and jeans, Rajinikanth was given a warm welcome by Shiv Sena-UPD leader and former chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, his wife Rashmi and their sons Aditya and Tejas.
Later, former minister Aditya tweeted a picture of the family congratulating the legendary actor with a shawl draped over his shoulder, offering huge bouquets of flowers, in the background of late Balasabheb Thackeray’s portrait.
“It was an absolute joy to have Sri Rajinikanth ji back at Matosree,” said Aditya when the star visited their home after 13 years.
A party functionary said Rajinikanth’s visit was purely a courtesy call and had no political angle as the Tamil actor was a staunch follower of the late Balasaheb Thackeray.
About 13 years ago in October 2010, Rajinikanth was here to meet Balasabheb Thackeray, they hugged each other, Rajinikanth sought his blessings and the two developed a personal rapport.
