It seems that Superstar Rajinikanth is scared for his life. The
deaths of his close friend Vishnuvardhan, the Kannada actor, and
co-star Soundarya might have evoked the fear in him. Malayalam film
Manichithra Thaazhu was remade in Kannada with Vishnuvardhan titled
Aapta Mitra and in Tamil with Rajinikanth titled Chandramukhi. The
film dealt with a spirit Nagavalli who is an imaginated one.
But Vishnuvardhan's and Soundarya, who died in an air crash one
month before the film's release in 2004, reflected that the spirit
of Nagavalli claimed both deaths. Rajinikanth was absolutely
shocked by the two deaths. So he conducted a Maha Mrutyunjaya homa
(to ward off death) and visited several shrines in and around
Mysore to counter the negative energy and evil forces. A senior
executive at Mysore's Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel confirmed that
Rajinikanth and his family stayed in their hotel conducting poojas
and visiting pilgrimages. Is he really scared?? or is it the maya
of Nagavalli- the unknown spirit..
