Whatever the superstar does makes news: be it his voting ‘style’, his going to the temple to offer prayers, etc. Rajnikanth visited the famous Kalikambal Temple on Saturday to offer ‘special prayers’ amid rumours that it was to seek the Goddess’ blessings for his upcoming film ‘Raana’
Rajini and many Kollywood actors/actresses pay regular visits to the Kalikambal Temple situated at Parry’s Corner in the city. Readers may recall that many sequences in his film ‘Baba’ were shown to be happening in and around this Temple, including the climax song ‘Sakthi Kodu…’.
The Temple has a rich tradition, with archaeological records stating that the great Marathi Emperor Shivaji had once visited this Temple and offered worship after placing his temple at the sanctum sanctorum. After offering ‘special prayers’, a devotion-personified Rajnikanth was spotted worshipping the Goddess. After going around the Temple a few times, he left the place.
Rajnikanth usually doesn’t involve in any major project before worshipping the Almighty and his spirital Gurus. This has been his routine for the past many years. In thisbackdrop, it is rumoured that Rajni’s visit and worship of the Goddess was to seek ‘celestial blessings’ to the commencement of the shooting of ‘Rana’ in a week’s time from now!
