In a recent interaction with fans, actor Arvind Swamy shocked everyone by saying that he had once forced superstar Rajinikanth to sleep on the floor.
When the confused onlookers couldn't come to terms with what the Thani Oruvan actor had just uttered, Arvind became nostalgic as he recollected the infamous incident.
While shooting for Mani Ratnam's Thalapathi, the then 20-year-old Arvind had once made it to the sets, earlier than required.
When he was asked to wait for his turn, the actor, who was making his debut, wandered around before stumbling upon a room.
When he sneaked in, he found a pleasant cot with a bed and quite naturally was attracted towards the cosy bed. Even before he realized it, Arvind was in snooze mode, as he was tired.
After a few hours, when he opened his eyes, he was utterly shocked to see Rajinikanth in the same room, sleeping on the floor.
When he rushed out and asked one of the assistant directors what was going on, he was informed that the room he was sleeping in belonged to none other than Rajinikanth and that the superstar chose to sleep on the floor rather than disturbing him.
