Veteran star Rajinikanth was recently spotted arriving at the Mumbai airport with tight security. He is reportedly in the city for the shoot of his daughter Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s film ‘Lal Salaam.’ A recent paparazzi video of him exiting the airport surfaced online, leaving fans praising him for his simplicity.
The video features Rajinikanth smiling and waving at the media and others at the airport. He wore a simple blue T-shirt with grey pants and a black sling bag. He also greeted fans and security personnel in an ordinary hatchback car while leaving the airport premises.
Reacting to his simple airport sighting, fans appreciated the actor for being down to earth. One of them wrote in the comments, “So down to earth...no expensive car, no ego.” Another commented, “Thalaivaaaaaaaa. What a man…Looks so young at the age of 72 and look at that speed.” A fan also called him “The boss”.
Rajinikanth will reportedly be filming for Lal Salaam in Mumbai. According to a media report, the film will be led by Vikranth, while Rajinikanth will appear in a significant role. It's believed that the film will be a cricket drama, and the first schedule was already wrapped up last month.
Talking about the project, Aishwarya Rajinikanth shared an update on Twitter earlier in the day. She said the first look of Appa from Lal Salaam will be unveiled at midnight. “THE MAN ..THE MANIDHAN…THE POWER MAGNET ARRIVES MIDNIGHT… #Thalaivar #Appa #lalsalaam,” read her post. The post featured a poster on which a silhouette of a man is seen at Mumbai's Gateway Of India.
Reacting to the post, many fans guessed that the original poster would feature none other than Rajinikanth. A fan commented, “What a surprise…The man…The maidan superstar Rajinikanth sir Thalaivar has arrived.” “That’s a surprise tweet,” added another one.
Rajinikanth was last seen in ‘Annaatthe.’ Besides ‘Lal Salaam,’ he also has his much-anticipated film ‘Jailer’ in the pipeline.
