Superstar Rajinikanth is someone who never fails to appreciate good films and having said that, he has expressed his liking towards the latest Tamil film, Mahaan. Chiyaan Vikram's Mahaan, directed by Karthik Subbaraj released yesterday (February 10) on Amazon Prime Video as a direct OTT release and the film has been garnering fairly positive reviews from the critics and audience. Chiyaan Vikram's performance is being raved by the fans and general audience and it has given him a solid comeback. Having said that, the film has now struck a chord with our beloved Superstar Rajinikanth.

Yes! Rajinikanth has liked Mahaan and he has conveyed his wishes to director Karthik Subbaraj over a phone call. An excited Karthik Subbaraj took to his official Twitter page to share his happiness about it. Rajinikanth has called Mahaan an excellent film backed by fantastic performances. Karthik Subbaraj's tweet read, "Excellent movie ... Superb Performances .... Brilliant " Yes.... Thalaivar loveeeed #Mahaan Thanks for your call Thalaivaaa..... We are Elated!! #ThalaivarLovedMahaan #MahaanOnPrime #MahaanStreamingNow". This hearty wish coming from the Superstar himself must indeed be a moment to cherish for the team of Mahaan.

Karthik Subbaraj is an ardent fan of Rajinikanth and he must surely be on cloud nine, receiving these heaps of praises from his favourite idol. Chiyaan Vikram and his son Dhruv Vikram have starred together for the very first time with Mahaan and it is the duo's striking performances that kept the audiences invested in the film. Produced by Lalit Kumar under the banner of Seven Screen Studio, the film has music composed by Santhosh Narayanan and has Simha, Simran, and Sananth in important roles. Now that Mahaan is out on Prime Video, Vikram has two other films getting ready for release - Cobra and Mani Ratnam's historical epic, Ponniyin Selvan. On the other hand, Dhruv will be joining hands with director Mari Selvaraj for his next outing.
