According to reports, Rajnikanth was supposed to meet the Malaysian leader during his one-month long visit to Malaysia for the shooting of his film Kabali. But the PM's schedule did not allow, so when he came visiting India, Rajnikanth extended an invitation.

Incidentally, the visit fuelled the rumour that Rajnikanth may be replacing Shah Rukh Khan as coutry's brand ambassador, of Malaysia Tourism, but, Thalaivar quashed all the rumours.

Rajinikanth said, "I was not offered to become brand ambassador for Malaysia. These are all rumours."
