Ahead of the release of his movie Lal Salaam, Rajinikanth's fans put up banners, posters, and garlands outside a theatre in Chennai.
The Thalaiva plays a special role in daughter Aishwarya Rajinikanth's directorial venture.
The film features Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in lead roles. Music is scored by A R Rahman.
On the release day, Rajinikanth took to X and gave a shout out to Aishwarya. He addressed Aishwarya as his mother and wished her luck for the success of the film.
'Beloved salaam to my beloved mother Aishwarya. I am praying to God that your movie Lal Salaam becomes successful,' the doting father and beloved superstar wrote.
Fans can be seen worshiping a huge cut-out poster of Rajinikanth. They also distributed food packets outside the theatre.
