Thiruchendur in Tamil Nadu is famous for being one of the six abodes of Lord Muruga. This shore temple of Lord Shiva's second son attracts devotees from all over the World.
But on this day, the gods took a backseat as a demigod of Tamil cinema Rajnikanth, enthralled young and old alike with his most awaited film Sivaji.
The excitement was palpable at Gnanakumar, a small theatre with a 700-seating capacity, which, on this day, was decked up like a marriage hall.
