In 1976, I visited the popular Madurai Meenakshi Temple along with my co-actor Sachu. At that time, the priest asked my star, but I was spellbound to even talk. Later, Sachu intervened and asked the priest to offer prayers in the name of the deity."

Rajinikanth said about this tradition that his fans follow, "Do not fall at my feet. When it comes to seeking blessings, you should fall at your parents' feet, that of your elders and God himself. It is not necessary to fall at the feet of people who have money, power and fame
He added that he would love to treat his fans to a lavish non-vegetarian feast. "Sadly, Raghavendra Mandapam is a vegetarian zone. But, soon I will make it happen."
