Silver Jubilee Function - Live Report (Part 2)
12 Jan 2008
Now the anchor said :
Amaidhiyai irukkum arangam adhirapogudhu….Sooravali
ondru suzahalapoghudhu ippozhudhu….….. most anticipated,
most expected thalaivar came to deliver his speech and I
could hear nothing but applause and whistles even before
the comperer finishes his sentence. Iyooo….it took more
than two minutes for the claps to settle down. I head
from the balcony.
Thalaivar addressed Chief
Minister in his traditional style (thennindhiya mootha
arasiyal thalaivar Dr.Kalaignar avargale) and finally
said his trademark "Ennai Vaazha vaiththa deivangalan
Tamilzhaga makkalae…. (Do I need to mention the applauds
and whistles and shouts again here?)
Thanks to all Chief
Though they knew that
there is some politics in the film I thank Chief
minister Kalaignar, Former CM Jayalalithaji and Chandra
babu naiduji for accepting my invite to preview the film
and singing their praises on it.
I thank the English media
houses CNN-IBN, NDTV, Headlines today and Times Now
separately for their wonderful coverage of the film
during release. Thanks to them again. You all know that
Sivaji had an excellent run in many abroad countries and
in many parts and states of North India and
it is a pride for me to be as part in such film and it
is again pride for Tamil. (He didn't claim he is the
I also thank my make-up
artiste Bhanu for showing me young and also KV Anand sir
for the same. Withouth their hardwork it would be
impossible to show me such youthful.
Thalaivar uttered many
instant punch dialogues throughout the function.
"Nee saapidurathu un
udambilayae thangitta un udambu kettu poyidum. Nee
sambathikirathu un kittayae thangitta nee kettu poiduva"
KB sir asked ME "How did
you acted like this. Wonderful." I said "Sir, during
Avargal, Moondru Mudhichu how did I acted? Without any
refusal or hesitation or single word I acted. Like this
I did what director Shankar asked me to do."
I am following Saint
Kapila's Saanki yoga in my life. Director Shankar is
following that without knowing himself that he is
following in that.
Just wish to possess
something. Prepare action plan for that. Get the
necessary persons to implement. Achieve that. Enjoy
that. Then give the rest to others. This is Sanki Yoga.
By God'd grace ROBOT has
been decided with the same Sivaji team. It happened all
of a sudden unexpectedly. As Shankar promised about
Sivaji that it will be more that Chandramukhi, we will
try to give more than Sivaji in ROBOT. Before that I
will be doing a guest role for my gurunathan K B sir.
Sultan will hit the screens next year starting.
I didn't get
appointement from Sai baba for 4 times
When Puttaparthi Saibaba
was in Chennai I tried to meet him but I couldn't get
his appointment. Earlier I tried 4 times I couldn't get
his darshan. While I he was in Chennai after severe
attempt I had opportunity to meet him through Murali –
my friend. He insisted that if you invite him he will
come please invite. But when I invited him – he just
said a single world "paarkalam" and ent off. He rarely
meets anybody at their house. That mighty Saibaba
himself went to Kalaignar's house. Then imagine how big
person is Kalaignar. What to do….some don't like God.
But God like them. This is happeing with Kalaignar. He
has diving blessings.
I also thank CM for
writing me a letter of praise for me for watching
Periyar. And also K Veeramani sir, for co-operating with
me during Baba release on the song issue. A real thinker
with analytical thinking.
I don't want to speak
politics here. What all I request is just take care of
Kalaignar at this ripen age and look after him happily.
Thus Superstar spoke and
signed off. The moment Superstar finished his speech,
the people started moving and vacating and many seats
started becoming empty. This created some uneasiness in
the diaz. (Our member Prathap vanished)
The hall is now half
SPM came next for his
speech. He understood that there will be nobody in hall
while Kalaignar starts his speech. Already the time is
nearing 9.45 pm.
He pleaded the audience
not to go until CM speaks. SPM said as there is a woman
behind every man's success it is Latha Rajinikanth,
consort of Superstar behind his success. He admitted
that though he had done nearly two dozen films with
Supestat he couldn't deliver a film like Sivaji like
Thambi Superstar Rajini
is a mirror
Finally Kalaignar came to
speak. He looked very tired at that time. But once he
started his speech his voice (what a voice!) reverbrated
in the speakers of auditorium. Whenever he utterd the
name Superstar, the crowd burst into whistles and claps
and became tougher to settle down.
He said: Sivaji became hit
all over the world wherever there is Tamil peoples's
presence and not only among Tamils – it became success
among other language people. This is a success of Tamil.
Wherever Tamil gets succeeds I will be there to honour
Whenever I utter brother
Superstar Rajinikanth's name – I could sense the
electrification and cheerful waves. Whenever I meet him,
I used to ask him what is his next movie. He will just
laugh and pass away. His principle is just to deliver a
blockbuster and not below than that. So, he takes time
for announcing each movie.
I will also follow the
Sanki Yoga which is being followed by Superstar. I will
chart out a plan for attaining something. Will join
respective experts and accomplish that. (Did you
understand the meaning?) Thambi Rajini decides to give
blockbuster. Prepares himself for that. Joins experts
like Shankar for that. Finally achieves it. (Somebody
pls brief me on Sanki yoga. I googled but unable to get
info on it)
Thambi Superstar never
thinks that he himself is the reason for success. He
gives credit duly to others. He is a mirror to others.
Thambi Vairamuthu said
that he is beyond the sky above the stars. I say he is
further above the stars and now near Sun. (Sooriyan)
(Crowd bursts into applauds) I don't speak politics
here. He is really near Sun now, much brighter.
I know lots about thambi
Rajini and his life style. I have melted down many times
while reading about him and his way of living and
leading life. Thambi Superstar said that I don't like
God but God likes him. I wonder. Because a decade ago I
said the samething in a meeting with saints. I don't
think that Rajini knows it. But he has rightly said it.
One who fears God means he
fears his conscience. I fear my conscience.
Thambi Rajini also shows
you that he won't act in life since he acts in movie. He
also reaffirms you all that – he is one among you.
I know the meaning about
his request for keeping me happy and take care of me. He
says that he is wishing to see me always serving you.
Because that alone keeps me happy.
1) Superstar confirms
ROBOT and another movie before that.
2) Nobody scolded anybody in the function.
3) The function was purely a feather touch function with
no hard feelings
4) I thank Solomon Paapaiya, Pattimanram Raja,
Vairamuthu, KV Anand and others who gave an excellent
5) Throughout the function many comedies happened which
made us to burst into laughter. A video clip was shown
correspondingly when the person were presented shield.
For. Eg. Balleilakka song when Brinda received the
shield. When Shreya was receiving the shield they showed
her Tamil culure appearance in temple. But in the
function she came in very very glamour attire. This made
audience to burst into laughs.
6) As usual Superstar
stole the Show. The man of the match is Vairamuthu.
7) Kalaignar TV didn't use
any crane shot during the shooting of the event and it
was a disappointment for me. They have to go miles to
catch up with the Sun Tv's technical quality in covering
8) Though the function had
lot of sodhappals I don't want to mention them and am
just mentioning positive aspects.
9) She was sitting legs
crossed in the diaz and the balcony fans shouted at her
to sit straight. (Kaal mela kaal poettu ukkarndhirudha)
She didn't understand fans' shout and thought that they
are just became berserk of her and waived her hands.
Shankar saw this and he summoned some PRO and asked her
to sit properly.
10) Raghuvaran came full
11) SA Chandrasekhar left
in half way.
12) Could not spot
prominent actors other than Sivaji unit members.
Nayantara was absent.
13) Seems that a section
of PRESS has boycotted the function due to some
difference of opinion with AVM. So in front of me there
were more than dozen seats remained unoccupied
throughout the function.
14) Superstar looked smart
and handsome in the black (White striped) pyjama and
15) Myself and TVE Rajesh
were giving cat calls and shouts and whistles throughout
the function and enjoyed like kids. Senior press people
wondered that from which press these Saithan's have
16) It is again reaffirmed
that Superstar never takes point at detractors and gives
them publicity. I expected he would give a fitting reply
to those who degraded Sivaji. But he seems – don't care.
Whatever you wish – you write. God is with me.
17) I came home last night
11.30 pm late night. So, couldn't post this immediately. Again from
morning I am typing this for more than 5 hours.
18) Since I was taking
notes while the function was going on – I couldn't
recollect all of the events and happening in the
function. I may have missed something or many thing.
Please excuse me for that. Will intimate you before I
come to know when Kalaignar Tv is going to telecast the
19) Superstar didn't fail
to waive his hands and put vanakkam to all audiences
once the programme was over.
20) I got autograph from
Shankar and also congratulated him for ROBOT. Also
requested him to change intro graphics in that cycle
21) Sorry for any typos.
Since I typed this in maximum speed.
22) Yesterday Morning,
Superstar presented shields and mementos to theatres and
distributors in Raghavendra mandapam, where he was
spotted in blue jeans. Check that link at bottom.
