Superstar Rajinikanth, who has his own ways of presenting gifts to those he likes, has presented Rs.3 lakh as wedding gift to Adamdasan, the director of Paambu Sattai, a non-starrer starring Keerthy Suresh and Bobby Simha.
An erstwhile assistant of director Pa. Ranjith, Adamdasan got the opportunity to turn director with Paambu Sattai after struggling hard for many years. Though the film was critically acclaimed, it didn’t receive the kind of appreciation from audiences at the box-office.
Adamdasan reportedly sought an appointment from Rajini to invite him for his marriage; Rajini reportedly responded by asking him to come and meet him the next day. Adamdasan was upset that Rajini didn’t talk much to him and confided his feelings to his friend and director Prabhu Rajachozhan who goes on to narrate what followed later.
“Rajini has time and again revealed his intention to help others not for the sake of publicity but from the bottom of his heart. Rajini, when he met Adamdasan the next day, presenting him an envelope which had Rs.3 lakhs in it. It was the greatest possible help to Adamdasan who had been going through a torrid time financially; we don’t know how Rajini found about it. Hats off to his help!” says Rajachozhan.
That’s Rajini, the ‘man of the masses’, for you!
