Superstar Rajinikanth has thanked fans in a letter currently circulating on social media after his Kabali has been ruling the box office since it released on July 22.
The 65-year-old actor flew home to Chennai from USA where he spent the last two months there with daughter Aishwaryaa and was photographed at a local cinema the day before Kabali released.
The letter to his fans is written in Tamil and – because Rajinikanth is ahead of his times, as everyone knows – is dated 2017. In it, he explains that filming Kabali had left him exhausted and he spent the last two months recovering in USA. He also got medical tests done while he was there.
Here’s a part of the letter’s contents: “I returned to India after hearing the huge success of Kabali and witnessed it in person after coming here and am thrilled. So, heartfelt thanks the crew, director, producer, co-actors, fans, public, youth, women, media friends, theatre owners.”
Rajinikanth signs off in style, writing “magizhchi,” a Tamil word which translates into “Happy and thanks” in English.
Kabali was released on over 4,500 screens across the globe on July 22 and earned Rs 48 crore on the first day itself. While in India it failed to breach Baahubali’s record that made Rs 50 crore on the opening day, it has been luckier elsewhere. – CINEWS
