Though the IIFA awards ceremony at Yorkshire went off swimmingly, a little-known fact about the event is the reason behind non-presence of the Tamil iconic superstar Rajinikanth.

According to sources, Rajinikanth was offered a very special award at this year's IIFA for his tremendous popularity among Tamil-speaking audiences across the world. In fact the offer to receive this prestigious award was made by none other than the IIFA ambassador.

However Rajini who's always fought shy of awards and honours had to decline the offer. Says the Big B, "It's true we wanted to honor Rajinikanth at Yorkshire this year, but unfortunately he could not make it due to the release of Shivaji- The Boss. But we will honour him someday, for he deserves many distinctions."
