Kumar, an ardent fan of actor Rajinikanth, received appreciation from
the superstar recently when he showed him the trailer of his
upcoming Tamil romantic comedy Raja Rani. The debutant
says it means a lot to him.
"I wanted to enter films after I watched Rajini sir's
Thalapathi. When I finally managed to become a director
and finish my film, I wanted to seek his blessings. When I went to
invite him for the audio launch of Raja Rani, I showed him
the film's trailer and he loved it," Atlee told IANS.
"He said that the trailer looks very good and wished me luck.
These few words of appreciation mean a lot to me. I'm sure his
words would mean a lot to any filmmaker, new or old. I told myself,
'If I have impressed him, then how difficult it will be to impress
the audiences'," he added.
Rajinikanth was expected to attend the audio launch of Raja
Rani here on Friday, but he didn't turn up for reasons
The film features Arya, Nayanthara, Jai and Nazriya Nizam in the
