Rajini received a very special gift from an ardent fan who hails from Salem. The fan had a sculpture of Raghavendra made for his idol as it is well known that Rajini is a devotee. This sculpture has been made with five metals - gold, silver, copper, brass and bronze.
Like the rest of superstar's legion of fans, he was also devastated when Rajini took ill a few months ago. He also visited many temples and had many pujas performed. In addition to this he prayed that he would have a sculpture of Raghavendra done if Rajini recovered. And so when Rajini was recuperating, he commissioned this expensive work of art and had it readied in time for Rajini's birthday.
