Reports from various media houses say that Rajinikanth would meet Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Thursday. However, sources close to the actor say that no such meeting was planned and the reports are baseless.

In 2016, Rajinikanth was in Malaysia for the shoot of his gangster flick Kabali and the actor shares a good rapport with leading businessmen and politicians in the country. Ever since his announcement to visit Sri Lanka was made, Rajinikanth’s name has been constantly hitting the headlines.

The actor was upset with a few political leaders in Tamil Nadu for opposing his decision to visit Sri Lanka and canceled his plans. Similarly, there were reports saying Rajinikanth is planning to meet his fans on Raghavendra Mandapam to discuss an important issue but the actor’s publicist denied it as a rumour.

On the career front, Rajinikanth has almost finished his portions in Shankar’s sci-fi entertainer 2.o and he is also expected to join the shoot of Kabali director Ranjith’s new film in May.
