Mumbai: Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is no less than a God for his followers. `Thalaivar` as the veteran is fondly called, is literally worshipped by his diehard fans who can do almost about anything for him. Here’s what the crew members of `Rana` did when they heard rumour mills churning stories of the film being shelved.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “The workers of `Rana` have been toiling away to create a life-size set for the film at Ramoji. They had been hearing rumours about Rajnikanth making it back for the shoot soon. When the shoot got postponed once again, from October to December, they decided that they wanted to meet the star and make sure all is well."

What worried the workers of `Rana` was not the news of `Rana` going kaput but Rajinikanth’s health.

“It`s quite difficult to get to meet him these days especially, because he has been resting. But when he heard that a bunch of people had come to enquire about his health, he made sure he gave them time,” added the source.

Reportedly, the superstar sat down with his workers and assured them that he is recovering and that the film will certainly go on floors as soon as he is fully fit.

The veteran also requested his fans not to let work suffer by unnecessarily worrying about his health.

“When these workers came, he inspired them to work as hard as possible, instead of stalling everything because of his health,” the source added.
