The actor was in town for two important reasons, one was for attending Sonakshi Sinha's brother, Kush's wedding reception and the other reason was for the grand music launch of Shamitabh which will happen today.
The music launch event is very special as the team of Shamitabh will be honoring music composer Ilaiyaraaja for completing 1000 films. Rajnikanth's son-in-law Dhanush is playing one of the main lead roles in the movie along with Amitabh Bachchan and Akshara Haasan.
According to sources, Big B will be performing for 'Piddly' which the actor had himself sing while Dhanush will croon for some of Ilaiyaraaja's popular works.
Rajnikanth's presence definitely draws crowd so when shutterbugs got to know the actor landed at the Mumbai airport, they could not help but rush to the scene to capture some pictures of the superstar in the city.
Dhanush being the good son-in-law was seen protecting his father-in-law, acting like a bodyguard and seeing to it that he is not too bugged by the presence of the paparazzi at the scene.
Actress Jacqueline Fernandez who is busy promoting Roy across the country, travelling to different cities was also spotted landing at the Mumbai airport.
