An injunction suit has been filed against Rajinikanth and his fans for wasting thousands of litres of milk when his films hit the screens. A petitioner named Dr IMS Manivanna has approached the court to prevent Rajinikanth's fans from wasting milk, Hindustan Times reports. He wants the Tamil superstar to wilfully stop the wastage of milk.
"The milk is the resource of our society and when we are saving the rain water for our next generations, so why shouldn't we save milk. How can we waste the milk when it is the resource of our own society?" Asian News International (ANI) quotes the petitioner as saying. The case was filed March 26 and the next hearing is April 11.
It has been a practice for fans of Rajinikanth to pour milk on his huge cut-outs placed in theatres. It is their way of expressing their love for the superstar and praying for the success of his films.
