Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has showered praise on Tamil superstar Rajinikanth by stating that except Rajini, nobody could have done justice to the roles he performed in Enthiran: The Robot as well as its sequel 2.0.
Known in the industry as a ‘perfectionist’ and an ‘actor par excellence’, Aamir Khan has always said positive things about Rajini and like his Bollwood counterparts Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, he too shares a warm, friendly relationship with the unassuming superstar. Aamir was speaking to a Hindi television channel recently when he was asked about the offer to star in Shankar’s Enthiran and its sequel.
Pat came the reply from Aamir Khan who said that except Rajini, no other actor could have done full justice to the roles in Enthiran as well as its upcoming sequel 2.0. “I’m sure 2.0 would be a surefire blockbuster film as and when it releases in theatres,” he said. “I met Shankar at Rajini Sir’s request but realized later that the role(s) were tailor-made for Rajini Sir alone,” he told during the course of his interview.
“Every time when I think about Enthiran, I used to get amazed at Rajini’s acting in the film. I simply can’t visualize any other actor getting into this role as perfectly as Rajini Sir had done. That’s why I refused to star in the sequel 2.0, telling Shankar that Rajini alone would do full justice to the role in the film,” says Aamir Khan, whose only film with Rajinikanth was the 1995 hit film Aatank Hi Aatank.
