CM remarked that there is nothing wrong if Gopalpuram (where he resides) turned into a tinsel town.
CM defends his family
The audio of Murattu Kaalai, a yesteryear remake of Rajinikanth's blockbuster of the same title, was launched amidst fanfare at Sathyam Cinemas on Saturday (18-09-2010). This movie, which is produced by Chief Minister Karunanidhi's grand nephew Gunanidhi Amirtham, has Sundar C. essaying Rajini's role. Sneha has been cast opposite him.
While addressing the gathering, the CM remarked that there is nothing wrong if Gopalpuram (where he resides) turned into a tinsel town.
"Producing cinema is not an easy job. It is acceptable by all and there is no wrong in my family members taking it up as a profession," said the CM while defending criticism that most of his kith and kin seem to be dominating in the film industry.
Chiyaan Vikram received the first set of audio from the CM. Deputy CM Stalin, A.V.M. Saravanan, Ramanarayanan, Guhanathan, director Selvabharathy, Vivek and Suman were among others who took part at the glitterati function. Sneha was conspicuous by her absence.
PRAY FOR SUCCESS Rajini fans climb hill on knees for Enthiran
Being young or old does not seem to make a difference if you are a fan of Rajinikanth.This was proved by a group of Rajini fans in Sholingur who climbed the 1,305 steps of the famous Arulmighu Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Thirukoil at Sholingur on their knees to pray for the success of Rajini’s yet-tobe-released movie Enthiran.
Over 100 diehard fans of the superstar in Sholingur town in the district — aged between 14 and 60 — took up the starstruck three-hour spiritual endeavour on Saturday. All they want is to see their hero’s movie have a “magnificent opening” and run for a record 1,000 days.
With Enthiran fever spreading across the state, Rajini's fans here were excited to see their superstar in his latest avatar.
"We are not bothered about the difficulties involved in climbing 1,305 steps on our knees. All we want is the grand success of our beloved superstar's movie Enthiran. We want the movie to create a world record by running for 1,000 days,” said
They also raised slogans in praise of the hero all the way to the summit. When they reached the temple, they performed special pujas for Rajini and the film.
Fourteen-year-old Raju, who was re-christened Shivaji after the release of the Rajini-starrer Shivaji, also prayed for the early release of the movie.
