Superstar Rajinikanth, also the President of Rajini Makkal Mandram, met actor and politician Captain Vijayakanth, supremo of Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) at his residence. It was a sudden meeting that paved way for the media to speculate that it was a political meeting. However, it was later denied and said that Rajinikanth visited Vijayakanth's house to enquire about his health. Of late, Captain has not been keeping well and has been avoiding public appearances and meetings. He is one of the most loved personalities among the youngsters and yesteryear actors for his straightforward and honest attitude. He also enjoys a huge fan base on social media, especially among meme creators. Vijayakanth recently underwent medical treatment in America and came back to Chennai a few days back.
After coming out of Vijayakanth's residence, superstar Rajinikanth met the press and media and shared the reason behind the meet. He also added that they never discussed about politics during the course of the meeting. "When I was admitted at the Ramachandra Hospital, Captain was the first person to come and visit me. Similarly, when I came back from Singapore after my medical treatment, he was one of the first people to call me to inquire about my health. He returned to Chennai recently after undergoing medical treatment in America and he is in a good health condition now. I am glad to see him after a long time. He is a good human being and I will always have a special respect for him. I wish him a healthy life ahead. It was not a political meeting and no politics was discussed."
On the professional front, superstar Rajinikanth is expected to join hands with director AR Murugadoss for his next, to be bankrolled by Lyca Productions. The official announcement on the project is yet to be made, though cinematographer Santosh Sivan officially confirmed his presence in this movie through one of his tweets.
