Rajinikanth returns to Chennai after spiritual retreat in Abu Dhabi

Rajinikanth returned to Chennai after a spiritual sojourn to the BAPS Hindu Mandir in Abu Dhabi.

The actor was warmly welcomed by fans and paparazzi at the Chennai airport, where he graciously waved before heading to his car.

Rajinikanth’s visit to the temple in Abu Dhabi was widely covered, with images and videos of him seeking blessings shared on the BAPS Hindu Mandir’s official social media.

This trip wasn’t just about spirituality, as it also included a significant milestone in Rajinikanth’s life—the receipt of a golden visa from the UAE’s Department of Culture and Tourism.

Expressing his gratitude, Rajinikanth thanked the Abu Dhabi government and MA Yusuff Ali, chairman and managing director of Lulu Group, for their assistance in securing the prestigious visa. “I am deeply honoured to receive the prestigious UAE Golden Visa from Abu Dhabi Govt…,” he said in a viral video, reflecting his appreciation for this recognition.
