After cancelling his trip to Sri Lanka, superstar Rajinikanth has written a letter to Sri Lankan Tamils thanking them for their love. He has written to them saying he will meet them when the time is right.
The meeting comes close on the heels of the superstar cancelling his next month's visit to Sri Lanka to inaugurate a housing scheme for displaced Tamils in Jaffna following protests by some outfits here.
In a statement earlier in the day, Rajinikanth thanked SriLankan Tamils for their love and affection and expressed optimism that he would meet them when the time was right.
Following the cancellation of the actor's visit, theTamils in Jaffna had taken out a rally in his support.
"We will meet at an appropriate time. I pray to god foryour well-being," the actor said in the statement.
Though the April 2 meeting is sought to be given apolitical colour, the superstar has always steered clear ofentering politics.
Even recently after film music director and BJP candidate for the April 12 R K Nagar assembly byelection Gangai Amaranmet him, Rajinikanth clarified he was supporting none in the polls.
The superstar had in 1996 supported the DMK-Tamil MaanilaCongress combine which went onto sweep the assembly elections then, defeating Jayalalithaa.
