Akshay Kumar has said he was surprised when celebrity Rajinikanth provided cash returned to distributors after his film was unsuccessful from the commercial perspective.
“Rajini sir is not a celebrity, he is a whole universe. If anybody has got copying his style, be it (lighting) smoke or wearing a coat or anything, it’s him.
There is no one who doesn’t want to learn his style,” Akshay informed journalists here at the intro launch of 2.0.
“I keep in mind his one film ‘Baba’ had come and it had not done well. And he had called the distributors and gave back their cash.
This is the greatest indication of being a celebrity,” he said.
It’s new that the Khiladi Kumar has signed up with Rajni.
“In my 25 years of profession I have never put cosmetics, but in this film genuine 25 years ka kasar pura hogaya.
That’s nice to say!
It used to take me three hours to put the make up on and one time to get rid of it (for the part of villain).
While they used to put the make up on me, I used to note so many films on TV,” he said.
“I’m a calm guy and with this film, I have become more patient. I am grateful to (director) Shankar sir and Rajini sir that they thought of me.
I was stunned when they choose me to act before him. I’m his fan,” Akshay included.
Helmed by S Shankar, 2.0 which also stars Amy Jackson in the cause will launch next year.
It is not daily that a film by celebrity Rajinikanth flops. But with the superstar’s film Lingaa neglecting to thrill his lovers, Rajini and the manufacturers might be having difficulties.
A number of distributors and cinema theatre entrepreneurs are challenging reimbursements, with one distributor nearing the judge to get authorization to go on quick fast he returned back his cash.
As in comparison to Rajini’s previously blockbusters Sivaji and Enthiran, Lingaa did not make the Thalaivaa miracle on-screen and according to press reviews has triggered a loss of Rs 40 crore for suppliers in Tamil Nadu.
R Singaravadivelan, who distributed the film in Trichy and Thanjavur regions have also requested for the Madras High Court’s authorization to go on quick from 11 am on Saturday, a study in The Times of India said.
By plenty of your time HC Rights TS Sivagnanam took up Singaravadivelan’s case for listening to, four other suppliers had signed up with the cause asking for your money back, the NDTV review said.
