Superstar Rajinikanth thanks Sri Lankan Tamils for support
CHENNAI: Actor Rajinikanth today thanked Sri Lankan Tamils for their love and affection, days after he cancelled his visit to the island nation following opposition from pro-Tamil outfits.
"I came to know your love for me through the media. I have no words to thank you. Let us think good and only good things will happen," he said in a statement.
Originally on April 9, Rajinikanth was scheduled to hand over 150 new houses built in Jaffna for Tamils by Gnanam Foundation of Lyca Group, a Tamil film production house.
The actor, however, cancelled his visit after various pro-Tamil outfits including the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) objected to it.
Following the cancellation of the actor's visit, the Tamils in Jaffna had taken out a rally in his support.
Expressing optimism, Rajinikanth said he will meet them (Sri Lankan Tamils) when the time is right.
"We will meet at an appropriate time. I pray to god for your well-being," he said.
