By: Settu Shankar Thursday, June 21, 2007 Superstar Rajinikanth's film Shivaji has brought about a controversy. It is said that there are references in the film that targets actor Simbu. In a scene, Vivek asks Rajini to go slow in delivering dialogues with a punch. He says that even greenhorns are parroting dialogues with a punch.
The experts say that the reference is to actor Simbu. The truth is that Simbu is a hot competitor of Rajini's son-in-law Dhanush. However, Simbu considers it as comedy and nothing more. When contacted, he said that the episode must be taken in the context of the film. He added that he is a great fan of Rajini and has high regard for him. The fact is that he watched the film on the first day first show.
