Rajinikanth returned money to distributors after his film flopped!
Yesterday, the first look of megastar Rajinikanth-starrer ‘2.0’ was unveiled and it was a star-studded event. Akshay Kumar who plays a negative role in the movie, was all praises for South legend Rajini Sir and shared an interesting incident about his down-to-earth ways.
He said, “Rajini sir is not a superstar, he is an entire galaxy. If anybody has got swag, be it (lighting) cigarette or putting on coat or anything, it’s him. There is no one who doesn’t want to learn his style. I remember his one film ‘Baba’ had come and it had not done well. And he had called distributors and returned their money. This is the biggest sign of being a superstar.”
Well, this is the first time that Akki has teamed up with Rajini Sir. He said, “In my 25 years of career I have never put make up, but in this film, pure 25 years ka kasar pura hogaya. It used to take me three hours to put the make up on and one hour to remove it (for the role of villain). While they used to put make up on me, I use to watch so many movies on TV. I’m a patient guy and with this movie I have become more patient. I am thankful to (director) Shankar sir and Rajini sir that they thought of me. I was shocked when they chose me to enact in front of him. I’m his fan.”
Who isn’t a fan of Rajini Sir? Now we know why Rajini Sir has a massive fan following and why he is revered down South. Super stardom has surely not changed this humble man one bit.
