Amitabh Bachchan lavishes praise on Rajinikanth
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is heard lavishing praise on south mega star Rajinikanth who has just returned from Singapore after a medical treatment.
Amitabh Bachchan has been busy promoting his next film Aarakshan lately, and he observed that while he has come to reconcile with his relatively new phenomenon (he admits he never promoted films in what he calls “our time”), Rajinikanth remains blissfully above it.
“Rajini, Rajinikanth never indulges in this practice. The practice of promotions. And on occasion when we talk film informally, he often questions me as to why I do this. It’s like selling yourself like a product, he often tells me. We laugh over it, but I explain to him that he is Rajinikanth, he does not need it. For him, it happens on its own.
For lesser mortals like us, we need to excite audiences, to propel them to take interest, to get them into the theatres,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog.
