Several of the Superstar’s fans are upset with him! Not because he has not joined politics as yet… that is an old and ongoing issue. This time, it is because of something that he said at the Enthiran (also known as Endhiran) music launch in Malaysia.
Enthiran, produced by Kalanithi Maran under the Sun Pictures banner and directed by Shankar, is one of the biggest and most awaited movies not just for Tamil audiences, but for movie enthusiasts all over India and even all over the world. At the music launch, when Rajinikanth came on stage to talk about the movie and his experience working in it, he said the real stars of the movie are Kalanithi Maran, Shankar, A.R Rahman and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. This humble comment has upset his fans who felt that their Thalaivar was underestimating his position as the Superstar.
We all know that Rajini has always been very humble; maybe his humility and sometimes over-humility has made his fans feel that he is letting them down.
What can we say, except that irrespective of what the Superstar says, it cannot be denied that Enthiran is such a huge film not because it is one of the most expensive movies in India or it will be have the widest release ever for an Indian film or it brings together some of the biggest names in Indian cinema. None of this would have happened unless Rajini was the captain… So Enthiran is huge because it has Thalaivar Superstar Rajni in the lead role!
So Rajini sir on behalf of all your fans, we have only one thing to say… we respect your humility, but our admiration for you is so high that we are unhappy even if you hide your talents and strengths.
