The name is Sun-tv-kanth
I was no different from kids who sang ‘Superstaru yaarunu keta’ more than ‘Twinkle twinkle little star’ during their kinder garden days and I was no different from any kollywood fan who has Rajni in his high esteem and always answered RAJNI for the question, ‘Who is your fav actor’. Rajni inspired me more with his personal life than with his career, I like him for his simplicity, his spiritual thoughts and way of living. ’Baba’ is one of my favorite Rajni film, I would prefer watching that than ‘Shivaji-The Boss’.
I don’t remember watching Rajni’s interview before, he never use to give interview to media and that made him more sough after, I think he has never given one before atleast after 90s. For this Diwali it happened, Sun Tv telecasted Rajni’s interview. The last thing that can anyone can expect is Vijay Sarathy interviewing the Super Star, cant they find a better person? he is not even as old as his experience, leaving that apart, he doesn’t even know what to ask, I hope that he was not asked to compile the questions. Vijay Sarathy is good enough to ask people visiting tourist places about their favorite movie/actor/song and not to ask Superstar about anything. Superstar’s aura and charisma tied me to the couch inspite of Vijay sarathy’s stupid rather silly questions, I never knew that the interview is about boasting Enthiran, every question asked/answered was in Enthiran’s context.
Vijay Sarathy requested Rajni to tell a story, Rajni thou hesitated at first, started narrating the story in his own amazing style, it went really well. For those who haven’t heard Rajni’s stories, it always ends with a message, which will have a huge impact and this story is no exception, the message thou not spiritual as I expected, had a very strong impact util he started molding it around the producer and director. It was so needless and looked like he was asked to boast about Kalanithimaran. I thought Sun Pictures bought Enthiran, but looks like they seem to have bought the star itself.
One more thing that made me sigh is Rajni’s words ‘Award ka padam parom, reward ku thaane panrom’ – No Comments on this. They say with power comes responsibility, so should it with stardom. One more thing is that, I couldn’t claim this as a tamil interview, Rajni was talking in English most of times, then I remembered( he can talk english, walk english, laugh english).
Still he has that supreme simplicity, hope he doesn’t lose that. I read a press article, which says that Rajni is currently paving his way to politics with Sun TV and Kalanithi after kalaignar’s period, not sure about the fidelity thou.
Hitherto a proud Rajni fan,
