Superstar Rajinikanth feels “blessed enough” to have lived during a time that had a “mahatma” like former president A P J Abdul Kalam.

Paying tribute to Kalam, Rajinikanth today said the scientist inspired millions of people with his life and achievements.

“I did not have the privilege of seeing our mahatma Gandhiji, Kamaraj or Barathiyaar but was blessed enough to live amidst mahatma Kalamji,” the actor tweeted.

“From humble beginnings Abdul Kalam ji rose to great heights but continued to live humble and simple. He lived to inspire millions of people. He endeared himself to student community motivating them at all levels. God has embraced him silently with love. May his soul rest in peace,” Rajinikanth wrote in his tribute.

Kalam, 83, died after suffering a massive cardiac arrest during a lecture at the IIM Shillong on Monday. His funeral will take place at his hometown Rameswaram tomorrow.
