In recent times, Rajinikanth has met many notable celebrities from the Tamil film industry. His longtime acquaintance and professional contestant Kamal Haasan, along with filmmaker Vikram Lokesh Kanagaraj and producer Mahendran, visited him at his home, ahead of the release of their film. Similarly, Sivakarthikeyan, along with director Cibi Chakravarthy, encountered the Thalaivar.
Now, a snapshot of Ajith and Rajini at the latter’s mansion has gone viral, and fans of the two superstars have been celebrating the unusual sight on social media. In the photo, which has gone viral, superstar Rajnikanth can be seen holding Ajith in his arms.

However, Suresh Chandra, Ajith’s manager, shut down this rumor saying that the photo was manipulated by social media users and no such meeting took place.
The image is actually believed to be an amalgamation of two photographs. In one of the two original images, Ajith is seen getting clicked with a fan, while Rajnikanth’s photo is said to be from his encounter with Kamal Haasan.

Meanwhile, Ajith is currently preparing the second lineup for his upcoming film AK 61, directed by H. Vinoth and financed by Boney Kapoor. Attempts are underway to release the film theatrically for Diwali 2022.
The film’s music and background music are credited to Anirudh, who delivered back-to-back hits. After AK61, Ajith will transition to AK62 led by Vignesh Shivan and supported by Lyca Productions, in the last quarter of this year.
Rajinikanth’s next film, Thalaivar 169, on the other hand, is expected to hit theaters by the end of July or August. Sun Pictures is backing the film, which is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar. Reportedly, Nelson is currently working on pre-production and an official announcement regarding the start of filming will be made soon. According to the current release schedule, Thalaivar 169 could hit theaters in April 2023.
