Rajini says he is touched by Lankan Tamils’ love on him

As Tamils in Sri Lankan staged protests against some Tamil Nadu politicians for opposing his visit to the island nation, Superstar Rajinikanth has come out with an emotional statement.

“I came to know about your love on me through the media. I don’t have words to thank you,” he said.

“Let us think positive and good things will happen. We will meet at appropriate time. I pray God for your wellbeing,” he added.

Hundreds of people on Monday protested in Sri Lanka’s Jaffna against Tamil Nadu politicians under whose pressure superstar Rajinikanth cancelled his visit to the island nation where he was scheduled to hand over houses to displaced ethnic Tamils.

Protestors belonging to different parties, including the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), gathered near Jaffna’s iconic Nallur Kovil. They held placards with slogans against the Tamil Nadu politicians.

On Saturday, Rajinikanth said he is cancelling his visit to Sri Lanka, where he was slated to unveil a free housing project for displaced Tamils.

However, he has asked leaders like Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi president Thol Thirumavalavan, MDMK general secretary Vaiko and Tamizhar Vazhvurimai Katchi’s Velmurugan not to politicise his good intentions.

Lyca Productions had expressed sadness over the “negative environment” surrounding its charity programme involving Superstar Rajinikanth in Sri Lanka and denied links with the Rajapaksa family, as claimed by some outfits in Tamil Nadu.
