Pasupathy, the actor who shares screen with the Superstar for the first time, is reportedly annoyed with the Kuselan team for not projecting him properly (as a hero instead of Rajini??!!) in the publicity and CD cover, has conveyed his regrets and apology for not attending the audio release function of Kuselan.
It may be recalled when the film started, Vasu, the director told that the film is out and out a Rajini film. But at that time Rajini immediately intervened Vasu and told that his onscreen share would be only 25 percent and Pasupathy would be awarded for 50 percent. The remaining 25 percent is Vadivelu.
But Vasu, the commercial specialist was very clear in a point. He told Rajini if he comes throughout the film only it will be working out. Otherwise, it would never click and the distributors were also not showing any interest to buy the film for big amount.
Just because of this business compulsion Rajini changed his stand and agreed to play the full length role as the Superstar hero of Kuselan. When the film completed, Rajini's role has been enlarged to more than 60 - 70 percent ("4 times bigger than the original role done by Mammootty" – Vasu). It is said that Rajini also advised the director to enlarge the role of Vadivelu and his combination scenes with the ace comedian.
Vasu also did not give any importance to Pasupathy in the CD or Cassette cover. Sources say that all these lead to Pasupathy's silent boycott in the audio release function by saying he was busy shooting for Vedigundu Murugesan in Dindigul and Miunnar! Now Pasupathy conveys his regrets to Rajini and Vasu for his absence and seeking apology from veteran director K Balachander.
The heroines Meena and Nayantara were gave much importance in the album as well as in the movie also not attended the function. Now both the actresses gave interviews and explained why they had not turned at the event. Yesterday Nayantara called on Rajini and conveyed her apology for her absence.
