Malaysian PM calls on actor Rajinikanth

Chennai, Mar 31 (UNI) Malaysian Prime Minister Mohammad

Mr Razak, who arrived here last evening on a five-day official

''We had a cordial meeting'', he added.

that he could get a chance to thank him and express his gratitude
to him.
Razak’s visit to Chennai comes ahead of general elections in
Malaysia, where the Tamil diaspora has a considerable presence
and Rajinikanth, a large fan base.
It was during the actor's stay in Malacca that Mr Razak
became a fan of the Superstar.
The actor also described as rumours that he was offered to
become the brand ambassador of Malaysia.
About his proposed meeting with fans on April two, he said
''the meeting was long over due as fans wanted photographs.''
''There is nothing political about that and there will be no major
announcement'', he added.
About the cancellation of his visit to Sri Lanka to participate
in functions and meet the Lankan Tamils there, Rajnikanth said
''I have given my statement. I am disappointed...but It's all over
and we will sort it out''.
About his upcoming film 'Enthiran 2.0', he said the shooting
was completed and it would be released during diwali festival.
''Everything went on well. It's set for a Diwali release'', he said.
