Superstar Rajinikanth was recently honoured with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke award at the National Film Awards this year and got a rousing welcome in his home city. Rajinikanth was greeted by fans to chants of Thalaivaa as he returned home. In a clip that has been doing the rounds on Twitter, fans of the actor gathered around his house and chanted ‘Thalaivaa…Thalaivaa…Love you, Thalaivaa’.
The actor smiled and greeted his fans with a namaste. “I dedicate this award to my guru and mentor K Balachander sir, whom I remember him with gratitude. I also dedicate this award to my brother Sathyanarayana Rao Gaikwad, who was a father figure. He raised me with great values, and instilled spirituality in me,” Rajinikanth said on Monday as he was presented with the Dadasaheb Phalke award.
