He adds, "We will roam in and around and sit at some corner. He loves peace and does not want to be disturbed when he is in temple." When asked about their friendship, he said ,"We are childhood friends and we share the same bonding even today. He might be a big star but when he comes here, he will be the same old Sivaji Rao Gaikwad, the original name of Rajini."

When asked whether they have requested Rajini's friends to alert them during his next visit, he adds, "We have told their friends in Basavanagudi to tell us before Rajini comes to the city. But they have been telling that the superstar does not like to be noticed and wants privacy. Hence, it has not been possible to meet the iconic figure of India."
