It is very well known to all of us that Ulaganaayan Kamal Haasan and Superstar Rajinikanth are the two pillars of Tamil cinema. Every aspiring actor who wants to be an actor in Tamil cinema must have been inspired either by Kamal Haasan or by Rajinikanth. Both them achieved many milestones in their respective career and fan base of both the actors is immense even today.
Being introduced by legendary filmmaker K Balachander, both of them identified as best friends since the day they started sharing screen space together. After appearing along with Kamal Haasan in few movies as a character artist, Rajinikanth started acting as solo hero in movies once Kamal Haasan advised him to take care of his own career. Now he has a fan base which no other hero in the world could imagine.
Now an interesting fact about the duo has been surfaced. Director and actor Chithra Lakhmanan, one of the senior person in Tamil film industry has revealed about how Rajinikanth felt after watching Kamal Haasan’s Nayagan. Chithra Lakshman says that Rajinikanth felt that his film “Manidhan” which was released during “Nayagan” won’t make it as the Manirathnam’s directorial looked exceptionally well.
“Nayagan not only made an impact on director Bharathi Raja but also affected Rajinikanth in big time. At that time, his film “Manidhan” was set to release along with “Nayagan”. On seeing Nayagan, Superstar felt that his film won’t surpass the victory of “Nayagan”. It scared him a lot as his film “Manidhan” was a commercial one” said Chithra in the interaction.
