Superstar Rajinikanth was the chief guest at the 50th-day celebrations of Y Gee Mahendra’s play, Charukesi. Rajinikanth thanked Y Gee Mahendran for introducing Latha to him and we all know that the superstar never steps back to thank his wife.
Rajinikanth said that he was addicted to alcohol, non-veg and cigarettes when he was a conductor and his habits were there even after he became an actor. But, Latha with her love and affection changed him.
Speaking at the event, he said, “I am forever indebted to Y Gee Mahendran for introducing my wife, Latha, to me. When I was a conductor, I’d drink every day and there was no count of how many cigarettes I’d smoke every day. I would start the day with non-veg and will at least have non-veg meals twice a day. I’d feel bad seeing all the vegetarians. But, these three are a deadly combination.”
He further added, “According to me, those who consume these three for a longer period of time do not lead a healthy life after 60. In fact, it was my wife, Latha, who changed me by showering me with love. She made me lead a disciplined life.”
On the professional front, Rajinikanth was last seen in Siruthai Siva’s Annaatthe. He is currently busy with the shooting of Nelson Dilipkumar’s Jailer, financed by Sun Pictures. Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will play a cameo role in the film. Sunil, Tamannaah, Vijayakan, Vasanth Ravi and Ramya Krishnan will be seen in key roles.
