Raj Bahadur, a retired bus driver, is one of superstar Rajinikanth’s close friends. In fact, he is one of the few friends who have been very close to the ‘man of the masses’ right from the latter’s struggling days as a Bus Conductor in Bangalore till his rise as the indisputable superstar of Kollywood.
Whenever he visits Chennai, Raj Bahadur would meet Rajini at a secluded spot, discuss his family affairs and other matters of mutual interest and would leave for his place. Till now, Raj Bahadur never thought of using Rajini’s superstardom or his money-power to satisfy his needs or get things done.
Rajini is said to be planning to make a film for Raj Bahadur. The wish is said to be deep in the mind of the superstar for a long time. Rajini also wants to do something significant to his elder brother Sathyanarayana, who has been residing at Bangalore all these years. Rajini is now said to be planning to star in a film which would benefit both Raj Bahadur and Sathyanarayana simultaneously.
Instead of making a film for each of them, Rajini wants them to benefit equally through his next film which is now to be directed by K.S. Ravikumar. The film in question would be produced by ‘Rockline’ Venkatesh, a Bangalore-based producer. Rajini is said to have been paid a considerable sum as advance to star in the film. He is even said to have signed along the dotted lines.
