Howrah: Tamil superstar Rajinikanth visited Belur Math on Tuesday. Rajinikanth arrived in Darjeeling on 6th July, Wednesday. The actor was in the hill town for a month’s time, mostly in Mount Hermon School, for shooting a Tamil movie for Chennai-based filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj.
The Tamil movie will be the first to be shot in Darjeeling after Telugu flick ‘Raja –The Great’ shot in April last year before the onset of the 105-day Gorkhaland agitation.
The Tamil superstar landed at Bagdogra airport in Siliguri on 6th July morning and then went to Darjeeling by road. His fans gathered both at the airport and lined major junctions along the road. During the shoot the superstar was accompanied by over 700 staff.
Though the hills has attracted movie shootings right from Rajesh Khanna-Sharmila Tagore starrer ‘Aradhana’ to Bollywood flicks ‘Main Hoon Na’, ‘Barfi’ and ‘Kahaani 2’, no actor has stayed in the hills for as long as Rajinikanth.
