After receiving NDTV's Best Entertainer of the Year award from the hands of Dr Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India, Rajinikanth said, " I believe in destiny. I believe in God and whatever God wants me to do, I will do. Yesterday, I was a conductor, today I'm the Superstar. But I don't know anything about tomorrow, but the almighty knows that very well. But I don't say no to the role of a Politician. Let us wait and see."
When asking about his counterparts Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, the Superstar said, "Shahrukh Khan is an excellent actor. I like his integrity. He is serious about promoting cinema and hockey. And Amitabhji is an actor par excellence."
