audio launch were in for a super big surprise as the
Superstar Rajinikanth was the Surprise Guest at the
audio launch of the film!
Although it was known that Kamal Haasan and Suriya will
unveil the audio, Rajini's arrival was maintained a
secret until the last minute.
"I am avoiding most of the functions as all my fans and
those from the film fraternity are important for me and
if I come for one and don't for another it will not be
right and I haven't yet completely recovered from my
sickness, so I prefer taking rest whenever I can",
started off the Superstar.
People at 'Kumki' audio launch faced a surprise when
Superstar Rajinikanth turned out to be the guest at the
"However Prabhu came home and left an invitation even
after expressing I won't be able to make it, when I
telephoned and asked him why he did that despite knowing
I wont be able to come, he said that as a thambi
(younger brother) its his duty to invite me and its upto
me to make it or not. I understood of how important it
is for me to make it for Sivaji's grandson's launch
film's audio release", said Rajini.
He further added, "When you receive too much of anything
in life, you don't know how to give back, its better to
avoid taking debt than wondering how to give it back.
He was all praises for his dear friend Kamal Haasan and
how he has made Tamil cinema proud by being approached
by Hollywood filmmaker, read Barrie Osborne. Kamal in
turn praised Vikram Prabhu for making his debut through
Kumki, where he has worked with an elephant (considered
auspicious) and assured that although there's a lot of
pressure on him since he hails from Sivaji Ganesan's
family, the film industry will stand by him.
The Kumki audio launch was one of the best in recent
times with the big guns of industry making it to the
event and hailing the film and the stars wholeheartedly.
Also present at the event were Karthi and Sathyaraj
apart from the cast and crew.
