This is definitely an exciting news! Salman Khan and Rajinikanth have a mutual admiration society going on between them. Last week, Khan showed upuninvited (by his own admission) to the first look poster launch of the latter’s 2.0 and said, “ I learnt about the launch and wanted to see Rajnikanth garu (sir). He is a most amazing man and I have a lot of respect for him.” A visibly touched Rajini then indicated that he would be keen to collaborate with Salman on a project if the possibility arose, “Even tomorrow if Salman says yes, I’m ready,” he said.
The buzz now doing the rounds is that the two will come together for a collaboration facilitated by top-notch South producer, Rockline Venkatesh, who last co-produced Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Salman Khan and Lingaa with Rajnikanth. Venkatesh has said in a previous interview, “I would like to continue producing films with Salman and associate with him again and again, if that is possible. We spend crores of rupees in the business of production but it is very rare to find a human being like Salman. He is a gem of a person.” (ALSO READ: Salman Khan the uninvited guest, Akshay Kumar sidelined, Rajinikanth’s rapid fire – 7 moments from 2.0 event you cannot miss!)
Sources say the massive project meant to bring the two superstars together, is still in the planning stage. However, when contacted, the producer maintained, “When Rajini decides to work with someone, everything just falls into place and things go at a rapid pace. On my part, there is no such move. I will announce my next movie at a suitable time.” We saw how great Rajini and Salman’s chemistry was at the first look launch of 2.0. Without a doubt, we can tell that the film with these two megastars would be one something to look out for. (ALSO CHECK OUT: In just 5 pictures, Rajinikanth and Salman Khan have created HISTORY)
