The Hindi film Shamitabh has Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush in the cast. Dhanush dons the role of a person who does small errands in the bust stop. He also becomes a conductor and finally becomes a film star.
Because of this, there was rumour that this film is based on the life of Rajinikanth. When asked Dhanush about this, he said, “There is no connection between Shamitabh and Rajinikanth’s life. As per the story, before becoming a hero in the films, he does some odd jobs in the bus terminus.
Selling tickets is one of the works. Just donning the role of a conductor does not mean it’s a Rajini story. It is wrong to spread such rumours.
” Director Balki while speaking said, “If we want to make Rajini’s story we have to get prior permission from him. We should be careful while handling his story. I don’t have the intention to make his story. The audience will know this when they see the film.”
