Superstar Rajinikanth is a demi-God down South and people truly love him from the bottom of their hearts.

Nana Patekar was asked if Rajinikanth is the biggest superstar of India and his reply was, "Film is the biggest superstar. If you story is good and executed well then, even if actors are new, the film will do well. As far as stars are concerned, the film will run for two or three days but later on if the film is not good enough, it will not run irrespective of who the star of the film is."
Nana Patekar credited writers for writing excellent scripts that make films a blockbuster hit which in turn create superstars.
"Writers are given more importance today. Salim-Javed gave writers a good status in our industry. A film is only as good as its story. If the story is not good, the film will not be good as well. The story should good look on paper. If the story is not good, no big star can save it. It will run only for one or two days. That's it. A star can bring the audience to theatres only for two days but not more."
