They may be fierce rivals at the box office. But their personal equation exceeds all other considerations. It therefore comes as no surprise to know that Rajinikanth has put all preview screenings of Kabali on hold until his friend and colleague Kamal Haasan is back on his feet.
For those who came in late, Kamal Haasan fractured his leg last week, rendering him immobile for at least two weeks.
Says a source close to Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth, “Rajniji had resolved to show Kabali to his friend and colleague as soon as it was ready. He values Kamalji’s opinion and in fact Kamalji has given Rajniji tips on how to improve on several projects in the past. Kabali is very crucial for Rajniji’s future. It comes after two thundering flops Kochadaiyaan and Lingaa. Kabali has to work bigtime.”
Apparently, Rajinikanth was all set to hold a very private screening of Kabali for Kamal Haasan when the accident happened.
“Rajniji will wait. First Kamal Sir, then others,” says a source close to the film.
