A photograph of Rajinikanth and wife Latha which encapsulating all romantic mood between the two is breaking social media. The duo posed in front of camera during one of the shooting locations of Darbar in Mumbai and the photograph came on social media on Monday.
In the photograph, Rajinikanth who is sitting on an iron chair can be seen in a police uniform and wife Latha, dressed in her usual rich silk saree, closely hugging him from behind. The attraction of the photograph is that the close bonding between the superstar and wife Latha is obvious. The couple has been together for nearly 38 years and they still continue to set relationship goals for their daughters and fans.
Thalaivar, Rajini was fondly called by his fans, is always a loving husband and doting father to his two daughters. Very rarely, we get to see Thalaivar's romantic side.
Rajinikanth first met Latha Rangachari in 1980 on the sets of Tamil film Thillu Mullu . Latha, college student then, came to meet star Rajani to get an interview. During the interview, Rajinikanth and Latha came close each other. Rajini fell over feet and proposed to her towards the end of the interview. On February 26, 1981, Rajinikanth and Latha got married at the Tirupati temple. They were blessed with two daughters - Aishwarya in 1982 and Soundarya in 1984.
Rajinikanth is currently in Mumbai shooting for AR Murugadoss's Darbar. The film will feature Rajinikanth in a cop role after two decades, and there is talk that he could also play dual roles in the project. Darbar also stars the likes of Nayantara, Nawab Shah, Suniel Shetty, Nivetha Thomas and Yogi Babu in prominent roles. The music will be composed by Anirudh Ravichander for his second film in a row with Rajinikanth after Petta, while cinematography and editing will be handled by Santhosh Sivan and Sreekar Prasad.
The film, which is the 167th film of Rajinikanth’s career, is scheduled for release during Pongal 2020. The action movie which has already drew much fanfare is set to hit the theatres on Pongal 2020.
