K.Balachander, veteran film maker and guru of Super Star Rajinikanth was all praises for the actor after he watched Shivaji. He says, " There is no doubt, that Rajini is really a global actor. It is not fair to compare the super star hereafter with other actors"
Balachander told: "There is a dialogue used by the super star in the movie Shivaji, 'Both Shivaji and MGR are not separate. It is me (...Shivajiyum Naanthan, MGRum Naanthan!) Yes, at present he is MGR as well as Shivaji. Rajini is incomparable with any other actor. He is the right mixture of MGR and Shivaji. He can do any role with ease. I have seen this talent in him from his earlier days. Don't try to limit his boundaries within the state or country. Rajini is beyond these boundaries. I'am really thrilled with Rajini's performance in Shivaji. Today I'm really proud to say that I'm the guru of Rajini!"
Hope there will be no connection for K.B's speech with the buzz rounds in Kollywood about the super star's next film for Kavithalaya ( K.B's own production house!)
