Rajini always proves himself as being in a different class. Amidst heroes hanging over in egotism and jealousy, Rajini glitters like a real super star through his simplicity and broadmindedness on many occasions. He never hesitates to complement his co-stars, even his 'arch rival' (at present there is no one as an arch rival to him!). Tamil film fans had a chance to learn about his generosity once again. Yesterday Rajini paid a surprise visit to the shooting spot of Dasavadaram at AVM Studios and praised Kamal as the 'original actor' of Tamil Cinema. After seeing the 10 different getups of Kamal, Rajini exclaimed that no one could equal Kamal in making special efforts to show variety in acting. Rajini couldn't identify a 'Negro man' who appears in the film for a while and later Kamal explained that that is one among his 10 getups.
This rare meeting of the Kollywood legends lasts more than 30 minutes. Media persons rushed to the floor on hearing this news. Later Kamal told the pressmen that it was not a preplanned meet. 'Since we both are good friends from 1970s, there is nothing to wonder about his visit to my sets or my visiting his sets. He too is capable enough to perform in 10 getups in a film. I think, in his latest film he has performed in that many getups... And there is nothing much to tell about our discussions to the press.' says Kamal.
Sources say that Rajini is now busy with acting for some of the patch work scenes of Shivaji at the AVM A/C floor. This work would be completed tomorrow. It was only during a break that he paid a visit to the Dasavatharam sets. Meanwhile, some portals report that the production house has decided to prepone the audio release of Shivaji for March 26th. But AVM administration strongly denies this and confirmed the same date as announced earlier.
