Rajinikanth’s family doesn’t want Salman
The superstar’s daughter has conveyed that they disapprove of Salman Khan playing Rajinikanth
After the stupendous success of his last four films, Wanted, Dabangg, Ready and Bodyguard, people began addressing Salman Khan as the Rajinikanth of Bollywood. Salman did not mind that, and his bro-in-law Atul Agnihotri went a step ahead and announced a biopic on Rajini with Salman playing the lead. It was actually Atul’s friend, ad filmmaker Lloyd Ba Pista, who thought of the idea (he also wants to direct it). The film is apparently in the ‘writing phase’ but there is already a retaliation from the south superstar’s family. Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya has been quoted as saying that the family disapproves of the project and the same should be conveyed to Agnihotri. His friend Ba Pista on the other hand says that Rajini is going through the final draft. Well, since we don’t know whom to believe, all we can do is wait and watch!
