One would think that Rajini is very manly and macho being the Baadshah of the Box Office. But a recent comment made by his Shivaji costar Shreya implies that he has a softer side. People who are ruling politics at present fear that the day that Rajini will enter politics but Shreya has managed to tame this mans heart.
Answering a question pertaining to her experience acting in Shivaji The Boss with Rajini, she said, 'Rajini is like a child and everybody likes to play with a cute child. He is very much like a child which is why people stick with him.' She further said, " I still can't believe that I have acted with Rajini in Shivaji, my dream project. This kind of an opportunity comes only once in a lifetime for an actress. I'm blessed person to get this opportunity to act with the superstar. Initially I refused my role in Shivaji because I feared the 40 year age difference would be difficult to combat onscreen. But I later decided to accept it.
She added, While shooting many scenes, I learnt a lot. He made me relaxed despite the cold feet that I got shooting for the film along with him. Don't attempt categorizing him as an actor. For me, he is almost like God. His concentration, involvement, punctuality, kindness etc. are all lessons that his less experienced co actors need to learn from. He is incomparable. There will be no one like him nor has they been anyone like him earlier.
Shreya couldn't stop praising Superstar Rajinikanth " even after she answered our questions. Lets wait for her to get to act opposite actor Kamal Hassan. Then lets see if she is in equal awe of him.
