Superstar Rajnikanth obviously enjoys more fan following than any other star in the country. His millions of fans offered various kinds of penances and undertook several yagnas and poojas seeking the Almighty’s help in the superstar’s speedy recovery. Now that Rajini is back in Chennai, these fans are finding various novel ways in showing their love and affection for the star.
In Tamil Nadu, the custom of offering ‘hair’ to the God in return for the ‘return to normalcy of a sick person in the family’ is quite common. The fans are doing the same in respect of the superstar. Many fans, on Rajnikanth’s return, had their heads tonsured as they had offered their hair to some ‘temples’ in the State.
A group of 1,008 Rajini fans are all set to ‘offer’ their hair to the Almighty at the holy abode of Palani Hills for having brought to Chennai their ‘Thalaivar’ in hale and healthy condition. Today, the fans would be offering their hair en masse at Palani. The fans have reached Palani under the guidance of Murugesh, an office-bearer of Rajnikanth Fans’ Welfare Club.
Many youths from Chennai, Coimbatore and Trichy are taking part in this ‘grand’ thanks-giving ceremony!
