Rajinikanth fans, who are awaiting official updates on the audio launch and first single from his forthcoming film Jailer, are excited as a picture of him posing for a photo along with legendary cricketer Kapil Dev is doing the rounds on social media. The latter posted the pic from his Instagram page with the caption 'An honour and privilege to be with the great man'.

Needless to say, die-hard admirers of the two icons are going gaga over the unexpected click which has been snapped inside a room. The two of them are all smiles in the pic, and it is nothing short of a huge treat for those who grew up seeing their achievements.          

They are now eager to know if Rajinikanth would reciprocate and post something about the meeting from his social media page. Interestingly, the Superstar was all praise for the Bollywood project 83, which was based on the Indian cricket team's historic win in 1983 World Cup under the captainship of Kapil.

He appreciated its director Kabir Khan, actors Ranveer Singh and Jiiva, producers and tagged Kapil in his tweet when the film was released in December 2021. His tweet read, "wow. what a movie… magnificent!!! Many congratulations to the producers and all the cast and crew (sic)."

His Twitter post came at a moment when many trade experts believed that the movie might not meet expectations in terms of box office collection despite garnering good reviews from critics. Kamal Haasan and Krishnamachari Srikkanth were chief guests for the film's pre release event held in Chennai then which was attended by Kapil, too.

The former cricketer was in the news recently when he was chosen as the brand ambassador for an SUV car. On the other hand, Rajinikanth is awaiting the release of Jailer, his outing after almost two years.
