Rajini has decided to express his solidarity towards the Tamils suffering in Sri Lanka.
According to Sudhakar, the new in-charge of Rajinikanth's fan clubs instead of Sathyanarayana, “Rajini sir is deeply concerned and hurt by the suffering of the Tamils in Sri Lanka. So we have decided not to celebrate his birthday this year."
However Sudhakar has allowed the fans to perform welfare activities such as distribution of free notebooks, food and clothing to the poor on that day without any fan fare.
Most of the Rajini fan clubs within the state and abroad have planned to organize free medical and blood donation camps for the poor.
