Social networking sites have been sharing a data which hasn’t yet been confirmed so far. It is said that superstar Rajinikanth, in U.S. at present to undergo make-up and other tests in connection with the launch of his upcoming film Enthiran 2, donated Rs.10 crores to the chief-minister’s flood relief fund before he left for U.S. more than ten days back.
On 01st December, Rajini had announced that he was donating Rs.10 lakhs for the chief-minister’s relief fund. This was the time when he had just returned from Kuala Lumpur (from the shoot of Kabali) and left for U.S. soon after reaching Chennai.
On hearing about the huge rains and unprecedented floods, he reportedly instructed his fans to undertake the work of distribution of relief materials to flood-hit victims.
It is said that the relief materials have been stacked in Rajini’s Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Rangarajapuram in Chennai and at the office of his son-in-law Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films. They have been dispatched to all the flood-affected Districts in the State in batches, it is reported. So far, more than 50 truck-loads of relief materials have been dispatched to various Districts.
Rajini’s daughters Aishwarya and Soundarya, ably assisted by Dhanush, have been supervising the work of providing/dispatching relief materials. Rajini and Dhanush’s fans have also been involving themselves in great numbers in this work, it is said.
“25 types of relief materials including mats, bedsheets, new clothes, milk powder, provision items, water-bottles, candles, mosquito coils, dhotis, sarees, rice, noodles, dals, etc. have been distributed to the Districts from Chennai.
“We have distributed these materials to almost all the flood-affected localities in Chennai and have been dispatching truck-loads to Cuddalore, Nagapattinam and Tuticorin for the past two days. So far, materials worth more than Rs.5 crores have been dispatched with 20 truck-loads of relief materials still awaited from Hyderabad and Bangalore,” said an office-bearer of Rajini Fans’ Club.
He, however, denied he had any knowledge about rumours that the superstar had provided Rs.10 crores to the chief-minister’s flood relief fund.
