Choreographer-actor-director Raghava Lawrence has strongly condemned those who criticized superstar Rajinikanth who recently cancelled his next month’s visit to Sri Lanka bowing to demands by leaders of a few political parties.
“My dear friends and fans; I came across many views about Thalaivar Rajinikanth expressed in the social media in the name of freedom of expression. As a great fan of Rajini Sir and his staunch supporter, I would love to share my views on why I consider and treat him as a unique leader.
“Amid those who want to float a political party with the support a handful of person, here is India’s greatest superstar who has millions of fans adoring and admiring him but still he doesn’t show any political ambitions. He could easily go up on a signing spree and rake in money as he is always in demand as an actor; however, he does films only once in one/two years revealing he is not after money.
“Rajini also happens to be the only leader whom the Prime Minister calls on frequently. Despite his massive fan following, Rajini doesn’t have political goals for himself and it is his simplicity which has won him millions of fans. I’m happy to be among those millions who have understood his goodwill and intentions,” Raghava posted thus on his latest Facebook posting.
