In the universe of Tamil cinema, there are two stars or shall we say superstars! Superstar Rajinikanth and universal hero Kamal Haasan. Now when Dasavathaaram has released, the success of Sivaji will be a benchmark.
Well-known actor-director Bhagyaraj says it is wrong to compare Kamal with Rajini because both are as different as chalk and cheese. “Kamal is more creative. He tries different kinds of characters and roles. But Rajini does not experiment much,” says Bhagyaraj.
Director K S Ravikumar, who has delivered two superhits with Rajinikanth and three with Kamal Haasan, says Kamal is for the classes while Rajini is more a mass hero. “Even the class comes to me because he needs some commercial aspects in the film. And the mass comes so that I can add some classic commercial aspects to the film,” said K S Ravikumar, Director, Dasavathaaram.
Rajini and Kamal acted in several superhit films together in the 70s and the 80s. In most of them, Kamal would be the hero and Rajini the stylish villain. Three decades later, the duel is still on. Source: ndtvmovies.com
