Nana Patekar was asked if Rajinikanth is the biggest superstar
of India and his reply was, "Film is the biggest superstar. If you
story is good and executed well then, even if actors are new, the
film will do well. As far as stars are concerned, the film will run
for two or three days but later on if the film is not good enough,
it will not run irrespective of who the star of the film
Nana Patekar credited writers for writing excellent scripts that make films a blockbuster hit which in turn create superstars.
"Writers are given more importance today. Salim-Javed gave
writers a good status in our industry. A film is only as good as
its story. If the story is not good, the film will not be good as
well. The story should good look on paper. If the story is not
good, no big star can save it. It will run only for one or two
days. That's it. A star can bring the audience to theatres only for
two days but not more."
