Rajinikanth offers prayers in Tirupati

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth offers prayers at Tirumala for recovering from ailment. He was accompanied by his wife Latha and two daughters Aishwarya and Soundarya. As a homage to Lord Venkateshwara, his wife Latha tonsured her head while Rajinikanth offered sugar candy that equaled his weight (Thulabaram). He thanked God for giving him a new life after prolonged illness.

Rajini said, "I am thankful to all my fans who prayed for me while I was undergoing treatment. By the grace of the Almighty, I am fine now and took part in the shoot of Ra.One recently. This is a thanksgiving visit to the Lord for answering our prayers."

On 'Rana', his much awaited forthcoming film, the top actor said, "Doctors advised me to rest for another three months before I resume shooting for Rana. My Diwali wishes to all."

Rajini and his family members spent about 30 minutes inside the temple. When the news spread that Rajini is inside the temple complex, a large number of devotees and fans thronged before the temple complex to have a glimpse of their idol.
