Superstar Rajini is a show-stealer wherever he goes. The crowd just erupts at the sign of the man, and each gesture, wave and smile from him are greeted with thunderous applause. Yesterday's mammoth I audio launch function was no exception.
But the biggest superstar in Asia, was apparently overwhelmed by what he saw of I yesterday, through Vikram's performance on stage as a beast, the mind-blowing teaser, the making video and the performances of all the songs. When his turn to speak came up, Rajini was as honest and real as possible and expressed his admiration for the entire team, specially Vikram, Shankar and Rahman.
"This event does not look like an audio launch. It looks like a silver jubilee function of the film. The teaser makes me eager to watch the film. Shankar has taken a higher step with I and am sure he will touch another peak in his next film. He has taken Tamil Cinema to Hollywood standards right before our eyes"
Rajini also shared a chuckle-worthy story about A.R.Rahman and Shankar
"Rahman used to go to his mom and cry telling that Shankar is never satisfied with his music. His mother also asked Shankar why he was troubling his son. Shankar is that particular about what he wants."
The Superstar then turned to Vikram, who was sitting right beside him.
"I haven't seen any actor who has sacrificed so much for acting. I say hats off to your work, as a senior actor. This combination has to do more movies."
