actor Jackie Shroff is acting in Tamil movie "Aaranya
Kaandam" as a "Dada". During this film media meeting, he
shared some comments about our Superstar.
I always love Chennai. From Chennai, A.R. Rahman managed
to bring India to international level. I love acting in
Tamil films and happy to see genious artists in Tamil Nadu
such as Ilayaraja, S.P. Balasubramaniam, etc. SPB had sang
many songs for me.
There is another special in Chennai and that is our
Superstar Rajnikant. I have acted with him in Uttar
Dakshin (1987) as his brother. I know him very well before
this film but after this film we became very close
friends. When my marriage function was held at Mumbai, he
all the way attended my function. He is a such a lovely
person who gives importance to friendship. I am back again
at Rajini's city and very proud of it.
the numbers game in the film industry as a farce, he says,
Rajnikanth is the only true blue superstar in India. None
of the Hindi actors can ever dream of getting a price that
he gets. He can keep a film going for months on end.
