After 40 years, Athivarada Perumal was brought out of an underground tank at Varadaraja Perumal temple in Kancheepuram on July 1. People from various parts of Tamil Nadu thronged the temple to have a darshan of the Lord Athivaradhar over last month. Many film celebrities also visited Athivaradhar and interestingly, superstar Rajinikanth visited Athivaradhar along with his wife this morning at dawn and offered his prayers.
It is said that Rajinikanth received the due respect from the temple authorities and he also seems to have witnessed a special pooja. This is the second visit for Latha Rajinikanth and she already visited the temple along with her daughters, son-in-law and grandchildren, a few weeks back.
It has been announced by the authorities that the statue will once again return to the pond on the 17th of August.
Rajinikanth had recently wrapped up the second schedule of his upcoming film ‘Darbar’ directed by Murugadoss. The film has Nayanthara in the lead role and has music by Anirudh Ravichandran. Rajinikanth is playing a cop in the film after a long time.
