"Rajini had resolved to show 'Kabali' to his friends and colleagues as soon as it was ready. He values Kamal's opinion and in fact, the latter has given superstar many tips on how to improve several projects in the past.
'Kabali' is very crucial for Rajini's future, as it comes after two thundering flops 'Kochadaaiyan' and 'Lingaa', so this flick has to work big time," a source close to both the star actors told Deccan Chronicle.
The Enthiran actor has now decided to put on hold all special screenings of Kabali including the private screening meant for Kamal Haasan, until the Hey Ram actor gets back on his feet.
"Rajini will wait. First Kamal Sir, then others," a source close to the yet to be released film has said.
Kamal's 34th Fracture
Kamal Haasan suffered a fracture in his right leg while shooting for his upcoming film Sabhash Naidu. This is said to be his 34th fracture while working on a project.
"We actors tend to follow Steve McQueen's policy: 'Why use a body-double when you have a good body?'" the 61-year-old actor told DNA when asked if it was worth taking so many risks so frequently.
The multifaceted actor is said to be recuperating well and is expected to walk soon.
"Kamal is recovering well. He has a fracture in his right leg. But it's taken care of. And he's resting. The doctors expect to send him home in about a week and then, he'd require a few weeks of rest and recuperation," Gautami has said.
