Najib meets 'superstar' Rajnikanth, snaps selfie

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who is visiting India, met with Tamil movie icon Rajnikanth at the latter's residence in Chennai.
Najib also posted a selfie of the two, with the caption stating: "Just had a very warm and friendly meeting with Mr Rajnikanth the Tamil superstar at his home."
The caption for another photograph, which showed the pair having a discussion, read: "Who doesn't know Rajnikanth? Happy to meet the susperstar in person today."
Similarly, Rajinikanth posted a photograph of the two of them on his Twitter account.
"I am extremely happy to have met an excellent, friendly and warm person today... The honourable prime minister of Malaysia," he said.
On Wednesday, Malaysiakini quoted an Indian news portal The Telegraph as stating that Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor had requested to meet Rajnkanth during their visit.
The portal said the couple became fans of the actor, who is known as the "superstar" of Indian cinema, during his stay in Malacca for the filming of the movie "Kabali".
Following this, Rosmah's aide Rizal Mansor denied that such a request was made.
"Datin Sri Rosmah Mansor has the greatest respect for Rajinikanth and understands how huge a star that he is - both in India and in Malaysia.
"However, there is no truth in recent news reports that there was a request to meet M Shivaji (referring to Rajinikanth's real name).
"Neither is it scheduled for this visit to the country with one of the world's fastest economic growth this year.
"Speculation from unfounded sources is not helpful," Rizal posted on his Facebook page.-Mkini
