Rajinikanth has urged his fans not to celebrate his birthday this year as he feels it is highly cruel to hold any celebration here while Tamils of Sri Lanka are suffering due to the ongoing civil war there; Rajinikanth’s birthday falls on December 12th.
Rajinikanth’s fan club too has confirmed this request from the superstar. Sudhakar, the newly appointed president of Rajinikanth’s fan club, has announced that the fan club will not hold any celebration this year on Rajinikanth’s birthday since it is deeply hurt by the travails of Tamils in Sri Lanka. He also requested all Rajinikanth fans to heed the thespian’s request and to abstain from celebrating his birthday this year – a time when everyone is mourning the death of Tamils in Sri Lanka.
Kamal Haasan too made a similar request to his fans earlier this month and all his fans heeded his request by not holding any celebration on November 7th, his birthday.
