The superstar was at his oratorical best when he met presspersons prior to leaving for Chennai after wrapping up his portion of the first schedule of the shooting of his upcoming film Kochadaiyaan.
Rajini was accompanied by Soundarya Ashwin, his younger daugher and (debutant) director of the film, music director A.R. Rahman and Murali of Eros, a co-producer of the film. Rajini answered wide-ranging questions from presspersons. “I’m confident that this film would surely be the right film to cater to the tastes and expecations of my fans; it would be enjoyable to the young and the old alike.
“The film is being made on par with international standards. The song I have crooned in this film, which is almost uttering a lengthy dialogue, was a novel experience for me. I’m sure my fans would love this song. Thanks to the prayers by my millions of fans, I have recovered fully and am in sound health at present. I owe my thanks to them for their love and affection.
“I have always loved London and I must add that it’s one of the few cities in the world where I want to visit again and again. When I came to this city more than 25 years ago for a shooting schedule, I wanted to acquire my own house here. Later on, I got busy with my career and completely shelved the idea. Now I am confident of acquiring a house soon,” said Rajini, hinting that he might make London his home some time in future.
He also added that in his opinion, Bollywood’s Amitabh Bachchan was the ‘real superstar of Indian films’ and revealed that he would soon be acting in a film in Amitabh’s company.
