In a rare and slightly bizzare twist, the South Indian superstar Rajinikanth has been honoured by a cafe in Chennai. They have constructed a five feet and 11 inches tall statute of Rajinikanth out of chocolate!
Zuka, a cafe in Mylapore in Chennai, came forward with this surprise for the fans of the superstar to pay tribute to the actor for receiving the Padma Vibhushan award from President Pranab Mukherjee on April 12.
The statue has been put on display in the cafe.
The cafe had recently conducted a survey among the fans of the star asking whether they want to see a statue of Rajini made of chocolate, and received a tremendous response which led to the creation of the statue.
“It took us 168 hours and 600kg of chocolate to make it,” said Srinath Balachandran, the managing director of Zuka.
The statue was modeled based on a still from Rajinikanth’s upcoming movie Kabali.
Rajinikanth was in legal trouble in March when an injunction suit was filed in a local court in Bengaluru seeking an order to prevent his fans from wasting thousands of litres of milk in devotion to him during the release of his films.
