Chennai: BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday called on Tamil 'Superstar' Rajinikanth at his Poes Garden residence here. After arriving at the airport, the Gujarat Chief Minister drove straight to Rajinikant's residence where the meeting lasted briefly. The nature of the discussions between them was not known immediately. Modi was attired in a saffron shirt and dhoti and greeted Rajinikanth on the eve of Tamil new year. The Gujarat Chief Minister also posted a picture of him with the actor on Twitter. The meeting assumes significance as Modi visited the actor in the run-up to the April 24 Lok Sabha polls, where BJP is contesting in a six-party rainbow alliance. Though Rajinikanth has not openly supported any party, the saffron party hopes the actor's fans would lean towards it and its allies, which is contesting all 39 seats in the state. Modi is also addressing an election rally here, the first ever rally after the elections were announced.
