Chennai: Pledging his support to anti-graft
initiatives, superstar Rajinikanth has lent his sprawling
marriage hall here free of cost for the three-day fast being
organised by Team Anna activists for a strong Lokpal Bill.

"We are organising a three-day fast from tomorrow. We had
approached him for support. He (Rajinikanth) accepted it and
said he was always for anti-corruption," India Against
Corruption`s (IAC) Central Core Committee member MS
Chandramohan said on Monday.

The Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in the heart of the city
in Kodambakkam locality here will be the venue for the fast
being held from tomorrow to express solidarity with social
activist Anna Hazare, who is beginning his fast in Mumbai.

"He (Rajinikanth) offered it free of cost and said it was
his service to the country," Chandramohan said.

Asked whether Rajnikanth would visit the venue during the
fast, Chandramohan said, "He is always invited. But, he has
not said anything on that possibility so far."

IAC is also planning to hold `jail bharo andolan` from
December 30, he said.
