Rajinikanth in UAE

On Monday, Rajinikanth spent quality time with his friend Yusuff and some top company executives of Lulu Group. While in Abu Dhabi, he visited Yusuff’s house and even took a ride in his Rolls Royce. A video shared by one of the company’s employees shows Rajinikanth looking gleeful as he rides in the swanky car to the residence, where the duo chat away. Many had speculated why Rajinikanth was meeting these corporate executives, with some wondering if it was about business. But with this announcement on Thursday, it’s clear that he had taken Yusuff’s help to get the visa.

Upcoming work

Rajinikanth has exciting films lined up for release. Apart from Vettaiyan, which will release in October and also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Fahadh Faasil and Rana Daggubati, he will star in Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Coolie. The film’s announcement teaser was met with a good response but ran into trouble due to the music composed by Anirudh Ravichander. Ilaiyaraaja sent the producers a legal notice for using one of his old songs without permission.
