New Delhi: Rajinikanth, the superstar who enjoys God like status in South India, was on Tuesday not allowed to board a flight at the Chennai airport.
As per reports, the veteran actor was heading towards Malaysia for shooting for his upcoming movie Kabali when he was stopped by the airport authorities.
Apparently, he had forgotten to bring his passport and as a result could not board his flight. This uncalled for problem threw the actor in a bit of a pickle.
Much like his movies, the incident sparked the suspense whether the superstar would be able to board the flight on time. But, luckily, his assistant was quick enough to bring the passport on time facilitating Rajinikanth's smooth boarding and hassle free travel to Malaysia.
His airport pictures are all over the social media after the incident, much to the fans delight.
On the scene, Rajinikanth also addressed the media and the fans who were crowding him. He conveyed his immense gratitude to the Prime Minister and the Indian government for awarding him with Padma Vibhushan, the second highest civilian honour.
Talking about the movie, Rajinikanth revealed that the shooting for Kabali is about to be completed soon.
Helmed by Pa Ranjith of Madras fame, Kabali also stars Radhika Apte, Kishore, Kalaiyarasan, Dhansika and Dinesh Ravi in important roles. The movie is slated to release in May this year.
