Shiv Sena woos Rajinikanth
Saturday, November 22, 2008 • Tamil Comments

Bal Thackeray, leader of Shiv Sena has written in his party's publication 'Samna' that Rajinikanth has been just magnificent with his decision not to celebrate his birthday as he wants to express his solidarity with the suffering Tamils in Sri Lanka.

Shiv Sena has been voicing its concerns for the Marati cause for a long time. Rajinikanth whose real name is Sivaji Rao Gaekward was born to Marati parents in Karnataka and eventually made it big in Tamilnadu as an actor par excellence. The actor has found tremendous favor with the Shiv Sena chief who describes him as a just man.

The Shiv Sena chief has also praised politicians from Tamilnadu because they have transcended politics and have taken a unanimous stand on the suffering Lankan Tamils.

'While the Tamil cause is appreciated nationwide, why is the Marati cause brought under the scanner time and again?' he asks.

Bal Thackeray further wrote that Rajinikanth has finished with his good work in Tamilnadu and should go to Maharashtra to fight for the Marati cause.

Well, Rajinikanth seems to be finding favor with just about everybody these days.
