Superstar Rajinikanth called on the Thackeray family at their `Matoshri` home here on Saturday afternoon, in what was described as a “courtesy call”.
Rajinikanth, in a simple shirt and jeans, was accorded a warm welcome by Shiv Sena-UBT President and ex-Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, his wife Rashmi and their sons Aditya and Tejas.
Later, Aditya – an ex-Minister – tweeted a picture of the family greeting the legendary actor, draping a shawl around his shoulder and offering a large bouquet of flowers against a backdrop of a portrait of the late Balasaheb Thackeray.
“An absolute delight to have Shri Rajinikanthji at Matoshri once again,” said Aditya, as the star came to their home after 13 years.
A party office-bearer said that Rajinikanth`s visit was purely a “courtesy call”, and there was no political angle to it as the Tamil actor was a strong follower of the late Balasaheb Thackeray.
