It is always interesting to see an airline modify its livery, but of course, when you have Rajinikanth on it, the crowd goes wild. The airline also plans to hold more interesting events in the days leading to the launch, such as flying in fans to Chennai (MAA) for the release of the movie.

Of course, there are only few who get their names on the the top of a plane, and now Rajinikanth is one of them.
