Monday, December 04, 2006 Among those who enter films and after a couple of films, claim great ancestry or boast about their family wealth, Rajini is like a breath of fresh air.
He never forgets the fact that he was a bus conductor before he became an actor. He does not consider it beneath his dignity to accept that fact and this came to light in a recent incident.
On hearing that Sivaji shooting was happening in Bangalore, his old pals turned up, looking for him. Some of them had been his colleagues.
Rajini was busy shooting when they arrived and their arrival was communicated to Rajini. As soon as there was a break in shooting, he came rushing to greet his old pals and there were some emotional moments.
After the shooting, Rajini has his lunch with his old friends. The friends parted with a heavy heart. They found that Rajini was still the old Sivaji Rao!
