Rajinikanth Clarifies Why He Touched CM Yogi Adityanath’s Feet

Rajinikanth, who was in Lucknow for his next film Annaatthe, had met and touched the feet of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for the success of Jailer. The actor met the CM on August 24 and watched the film with him. He also visited Ayodhya on August 27 and said that his ‘long-cherished dream has come true’. However fans were not happy with the superstar touching a political leader’s feet to which the superstar replied and clarified.

“I met various political leaders. It was just a courtesy meet. There is nothing more than that. It is my habit to touch the feet of Yogis or Sanyasis and take their blessings, even if they are younger to me, I have done that only,” Rajinikanth was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. He added, “I want to thank people of Tamil Nadu and rest of the world for making Jailer a huge success.”

Jailer is produced by Sun Pictures and has music composed by Anirudh Ravichander. The film is expected to continue its strong run at the box office in the coming days.
