Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Saturday touched Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s feet during his visit to the BJP leader’s residence in Lucknow.
The megastar plans to view his recent hit ‘Jailer’ alongside the chief minister. “I will watch the film with the CM. The movie’s success feels like a blessing from above,” Rajnikanth said in an ANI interview before his trip to the state capital.
Earlier in the day, a special screening of ‘Jailer’ was held in Lucknow, which was attended by Adityanath’s deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya. Maurya said he enjoyed Rajnikanth’s exceptional performance.
“I had the opportunity to watch the movie ‘Jailer’. Having seen many of Rajinikanth’s films, I recognize his exceptional talent. Even though the movie might lack extensive content, his performance magnifies its significance,” the deputy chief minister told PTI.
Rajinikanth is scheduled to visit Ayodhya on Sunday. Before arriving in Uttar Pradesh, Rajinikanth was in Jharkhand, where he visited the renowned Chhinnamasta Temple, and also met with Jharkhand Governor C P Radhakrishnan at the Raj Bhavan.
The movie ‘Jailer’, amassing a total collection of â‚¹235.65 crore in eight days, has registered a good box office performance. The film, directed by Nelson, also stars Priyanka Mohan, Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Yogi Babu, Vasanth Ravi, and Vinayakan in significant roles.
