The event hosted by Karan Johar would also see popular stars Kamal Hassan and Shah Rukh Khan sharing the stage with Rajini and Akshay.

Meanwhile, fans of Rajini have lined up outside Yashraj Films to welcome him for the event. The superstar arrived at YRF in a white Porsche and staying true to himself, he stepped out wearing a simple white Kurta. Soon enough Akshay arrived followed by leading lady Amy Jackson in their respective cars. Salman Khan has come for the launch, he said he was not invited but he came because he knew Rajini is here for the launch.
