The opening credit of Lingaa had a thank you note for you and Rajinikanth himself had called to express his feelings. How do you feel?
Tell me one person who would not feel happy about receiving a call from the Superstar. You feel the biggest at that point of time. I am also happy because it got me closer to a gentleman like Rajini sir, where he is one phone call away. Trust me, when I call and leave a message with him, I immediately get a response unless he is busy with something. He is a great gentleman. And getting to know him close was something indescribable. I am one of those tiny specks in the crowd who had whistled, clapped in theatres, enjoyed when this man came on screen. And here I am sitting in his house, having a cup of tea with him. Time has been good and I have grown. For what he is, I have no idea how it feels to be there. It is scary and very lonely at the top. The whole world is looking at you. Your life is no more yours and it is always handled by the rest. It is nice to look at it from a distance.
When the whole world wants to become your friends, you look out for friends. The whole world wants to love you, but you look out for someone to truly love you. These are the kind of mixed emotions that I feel when I see him. When I see him, all that I want to do is, give him a hug. I have done it. A man grows beyond your imagination and the imagination comes to a halt. It is wonderful being Rajini but being next to him is better.
