In a true Tamil blockbuster style, superstars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan flew in together in a chopper in the national stadium in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on Saturday. Both actors were there to attend a fundraising programme featuring around 250 people, which also included a number of Tamil film actors. As the two actors alighted from the chopper, with fans cheering wildly, Rajinikanth was seen wearing mid-night black while Kamal Hassan was seen in contrast in pure white. The black and white contrast was eye-ball grabbing indeed. The duo were definitely sending a message to the public at large and the fans.
