Fans waiting outside Rohini Silverscreens from 2 AM
They were waiting outside with coconut, camphor, milk packets etc for that famous paal abhishekam

As soon as the gates opened fans entered waving these flags and celebrated
This car was covered entirely in Rajinikanth photos and quotes. I saw them during the release of Petta as well. They said they’ve kept the car, as it was then.
And then it was time to celebrate with ‘paal abishegam’
Of course, crackers were burst, for this is like a festival for his fans
This huge balloon welcomed fans from far
