Two superstars, Shahrukh Khan and Rajnikanth shared a common platform recently where King Khan came up with some praising words for 'Thalaivaa' Rajnikanth and said that he is a big fan of the latter.
Bollywood's big shot, Shahrukh Khan recently attended the music launch of Rajnikanth's latest movie, Kochadaiiyaan in Chennai and shared some of his thoughts and experiences about the veteran actor Rajnikanth. He said "I am here for many reasons and the most important reason is that I am a big fan of Rajni sir."
The Baadshah also shared an old day experience which according to Shahrukh made him one of the biggest fans of the Tamil superstar. "I saw Rajni sir was standing in front of a mirror and was practising throwing cigarette into his mouth. There were may other actors minding their own business but he was full focused on his practice. I was amused to see someone of his talent and stature practising so hard and that was a big lesson for a fresher like me then," asserted the King Khan.
Shahrukh Khan at Kochadaiiyaan music launch further said that he shares a great bonding with Rajnikanth and received all help from the Tamil superstar whenever he needed. "I got a lot of help from Rajni sir, Soundarya and Lata mam during the making of Ra One. I get so much of love from all of them whenever I come to Tamil Nadu and so I have come here as a friend," said SRK. "Films made here by K. Balachander sir, Shankar sir and others have actually made our country proud and I have come here to gain some knowledge also," he added.
Shahrukh Khan who is ready with his upcoming movie Happy New Year said that he is super excited about Rajnikanth's Kochadaiiyaa which has been made using motion capture photo-realistic technology and stressed that this technology will prove to be one of the finest developments in Indian cinema.
Kochadaiiyaan has been directed by Rajnikanth's daughter Soundarya and will have Deepika Padukone in the female leading role. The music of the film is given by A.R. Rehman and the film will be released on April 11.
