Pa. Ranjith has become the cynosure of all eyes in Kollywood as he has got to direct none other than superstar Rajinikanth after directing just two films in Kollywood. Ranjith, who made Attakathi and Madras, is now about to direct his third film titled as Kabali starring Rajini in the lead.
In a recent interview to a popular regional weekly, Ranjith has said that though he had heard about Rajinikanth’s simplicity, he was simply bowled over when he experienced it personally. In that interview, Ranjith has recalled the incident which occurred when he had been to Rajini’s residence to narrate the script of Kabali to him.
Soon after Ranjith completed narrating his script, Rajini told him “As a creator, it has got to be your decision to finalize who would have to work in your team. I won’t interfere in it.
If I have some suggestions/ideas, I would tell you and it is again up to you entirely to either take them or reject them. In fact, you need not even cast known/popular actors to star in the film. It is your choice and you can decide the cast members.
“I’m not a great actor and have become an actor mainly by people’s blessings,” Rajini said which floored Pa. Ranjith who couldn’t believe how a superstar, who is on top for many decades, could could be so down-to-earth.
Ranjith also said that Kabali wasn’t a remake film and added that the script was original. “Rajini Sir has trusted me to make this film; I would definitely make him feel proud for having done so,” concludes Ranjith.
