"The story will capture my relationship with the superstar since
our theatre days. It will be about how our relationship has lasted
over the years even though we've aged. I wanted to make the film
with no references to Rajini, his name or photos but we couldn't
avoid it," Raj told IANS.
Raj is playing one of the leads in the film, which will feature
a yet-to-be-revealed actor in the role of the superstar. "We want
to keep the actor playing Rajinikanth a secret. Audiences can come
to the theatres to find out who has played the role. We are not
trying to cash in on Rajini's popularity but use it to send across
strong message to the society through the film," he said.
The film, which is gearing up for release, has been directed by
Rushi. Raj said that Rajinikanth is kicked about the film and is
waiting to watch it together. "He is very excited about the film.
When I had called to seek his permission, he instantly agreed to
the idea and also told me that he would watch the film together
when it is released," added Raj.
