Narendra Modi to meet superstar Rajinikanth today
New Delhi: BJP`s Prime Ministerial candidate and star campaigner Narendra Modi is likely to visit superstar Rajnikanth at his Chennai residence on Sunday for a "personal meeting."
"Narendra Modi is visiting cine super star Rajinikanth at his residence in Chennai tomorrow evening," BJP`s General Secretary-in-charge of Tamil Nadu, P Muralidhar Rao, said in a post on social networking site `Twitter`.
BJP sources said the party`s Prime Ministerial candidate would be in Chennai to address a public meeting but before that he would go to super star`s residence at around 5 PM for a "personal meeting".
Asked whether the meeting could have any implication for Lok Sabha elections, the source said "it is a personal meeting" but hastened to add that "Narendra Modi and elections cannot be separated."
BJP leaders had in the past hoped that the party gets some support from the cine star who has a wide appeal not just in Tamil Nadu but in other states as well.
The party, which has been a marginal player in Tamil Nadu politics, has aligned with several regional parties and is hoping to put up a good show this time.
