Balasaheb Thackeray was a father figure to me: Rajinikanth in condolence note

South ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth has sent a handwritten condolence note for his ‘god’ Bal Thackeray

Tamil Superstar Rajinikanth, who is a Maharashtrian by birth, was very close to Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray who passed away in Mumbai on Saturday (November 17). In his visit to Mumbai a couple of years ago, Rajinikanth had met Balasaheb and had described him as his ‘god’.

Rajini wrote in an official note yesterday condoling Thackeray’s death:

“Sri Bala Saab Thackeray was a great leader and a father figure to many, including me.

This is a great loss to all.

My heart felt condolences to all his family members and followers all over the world.

My prayers for his soul to rest in peace at the feet of the Lord.

– Rajinkanth”.
