Superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan had acted together in numerous films in the year 1970s and 1980s. Some of the super hit films which had the duo were Apoorva Raagangal, Moondru Mudichu, 16 Vayathinile and Ilamai Oonjaladukirathu.
After some time both of them started acting separately. Efforts were taken to cast both of them but nothing materialized. Kamal Haasan while speaking said that there is opportunity in future for both of them to act in a film.
Kamal Haasan said, ” If Rajini and I act in a film, Rajini will not direct it. Either I or some other director will direct the film. If we both act it will be an interesting matter. Rajini while speaking in Thenali silver jubilee function reminded me of an incident. Rajini while speaking said,” I asked Kamal whether that I can be confident if he drives the bike.
Kamal immediately said that he will not allow me to fall even if he falls. Our professional lives have also happened like that. He never let me fall down. When I wanted to quit films in the year 1983, it was Kamal who consoled me and motivated me”. Hence there is opportunity for Rajini and me to act in a film. Talks are being held for the last five years with regard to this.”
