Rajinikanth: a Sonu Sood fan?

The Dabangg actor recalls the Superstar giving him the biggest compliment he received

Rajinikanth has millions of fans, but guess whose fan Rajinikanth is? Sonu Sood! Yes, the actor revealed the other day how he met Rajini for the first time. “It was on the sets of (the south film) Chandramukhi. I saw Rajini sir sitting alone and I went to say hello. He immediately got up and gave me a big hug. He then got his assistant to get a chair for me too and, till it arrived, remained standing.” More recently, Sonu met Rajini after he signed Rana and the Superstar had come to Mumbai. “It was Rajini sir who recommended me for Rana. When we met he told me ‘I have seen Dabangg and Arundhati (a south film) and I am a huge fan of yours.’. I replied, ‘Aap mujhe kyun sharminda kar rahe hain?’ (Please don’t embarrass me)” Sonu is one of the few lucky ones who spoke to Rajinikanth after his treatment. “I spoke to him while he was in Singapore. He is recovering well.” Now that’s good to know! But will Singapore recover as fast?
