Rajinikanth Clears up on Rumours about Feud with Vijay

The legendary actor Rajinikanth put to rest all speculations about a rift with his contemporary Vijay during the audio launch of the film ‘Lal Saalam’. He confirmed that he harbors no competition with Vijay and is, in fact, a well-wisher.

The Controversy Trove

A controversy was sparked when Rajinikanth, at the ‘Jailer’ audio launch, narrated an analogy about an eagle and a crow. Fans of Vijay misinterpreted his words, accusing him of likening the ‘Leo’ star to a crow. Amidst the social media uproar, Rajinikanth spoke up at the ‘Lal Salaam’ audio launch, clarifying that his statement was taken out of context.

Rajinikanth’s Statement

Rajinikanth expressed disappointment at the misinterpretation of his story. He clarified that he witnessed Vijay’s journey in the film industry since he was 13 years old. Vijay was introduced to him after the shoot of ‘Dharmathin Thalaivan’ by his father, SA Chandrasekar. Emphasizing that Vijay has grown into a successful actor due to his immense talent, hard work, and discipline, he pleaded with fans to refrain from drawing comparisons between them.

‘Lal Salaam’ Impressions

‘Lal Salaam’ is a sports drama that also explores themes of religious unrest. The film, directed by Rajinikanth’s daughter, Aishwarya, stars Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth with Rajinikanth himself appearing in a cameo. Responding to some unwarranted comments, Aishwarya clarified that Rajinikanth isn’t a “Sanghi” at the audio launch function. She added that Rajinikanth himself chose the intriguing role of Moideen Bhai in the film.

Future Aspirations and Concluding Remarks

Being produced by Lyca Productions, ‘Lal Salaam’ is set to be released on February 9th. Aishwarya shared that her father expressed interest in playing the role of Moideen Bhai himself. Her initial apprehension was replaced with joy when he insisted on taking the role. The audio launch wrapped up with a consensus about the mutual respect between Rajinikanth and Vijay, and the anticipation of the powerful ‘Lal Salaam’ hit the screens soon.
