A Ganesh Nadar in Mumbai

Rajnikanth made a rare trip to Mumbai to show off his new release Robot to the Hindi film industry. And a large chunk of the industry turned up to watch the film that has already become a blockbuster.

 

Wearing a cream kurta, Rajnikanth walked in just as it started raining. Immediately a number of umbrellas unfurled to make sure the Superstar did not get wet.

 

Once inside, Rajni ran up the escalator all the way up to the third floor of Mumbai's PVR cinema in the western suburb of Juhu.

'Lock kiya jaye' screamed a fan to the star, who is ready to launch Kaun Banega Crorepati on his birthday, October 11.

 

As he made his way up the escalator, Amitabh blew a flying kiss at a group of enthusiastic girls, and made their day.
