Don't urge him, just wait with patience !
(Tuesday, 9th September 2008)

 


Just go through the interview of our Thalaivar telecasted 8 months before in NDTV. This was also appeared in the same space but none have noticed that time. For me, after gone through the second time, it conveys a lot to all his fan community and it is the appropriate time to re publish the same here.

Please remember, this interview was aired lively, that too in front of the Prime minister of India Dr Manmohan Singh.


The Excerpts:

Speaking out for the first time on joining politics, Indian superstar Rajnikanth said that God has given him an actor's role, but if He gives him a politician's role, he will accept it.

Rajnikanth was responding to questions at the NDTV Indian of the Year Awards in New Delhi on January 17, where he accepted the award for Entertainer of the Year from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The evening saw some of the biggest film stars under one roof, with Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar joining Rajnikanth. While NDTV's Sreenivasan Jain interviewed Rajnikanth, SRK and Karan Johar also played journalist and quizzed the superstar.

Here is the transcript of the interview:

NDTV: Many congratulations. It's fantastic to have you here in our midst. It is so difficult to make you leave Chennai and Tamil Nadu.

Rajni: Indeed, it is a very different occasion for me. I am honoured to receive the award from the golden hands of our Prime Minister and political saint Manmohan Singhji. I am thankful to NDTV and all the people who voted for me and the people who loved me.

NDTV: One of the reasons why it is difficult for you to leave Chennai is because you bring the whole city to a standstill. Is that true that once you had to go to the airport and when you got out of the car, the whole city came to a halt?

Rajni: It is just a rumour.

NDTV: Or only half a city?

Rajni: No, it is the whole media thing. It is not a fact.

NDTV: Let me ask you that when it comes to recognizing Indian cinema, it becomes very Bollywood centric. Not many people outside of South India know that you are one of the highest paid actors in India.

Rajni: Who said I am the highest paid actor?

NDTV: You are saying that because the finance minister is here. But we know that you are a superstar not only in South India but all over the world. You have a following as far as Japan. Do you feel that the South does not get enough of recognition when it comes to recognizing Indian cinema?

Rajni: No, it's distorted actually. People have started recognizing South Indian films and South Indian technicians and artists, thanks to the media.

NDTV: Now the question that many journalists have been trying to ask is: when are you formally going to take the plunge into politics? I know you have made many endorsements in the past to different parties, so just when are you going to dive in?

Rajni: I believe in destiny. Day before yesterday, I did not know that I will be here. I don't know what will happen tomorrow. But I believe in God and whatever God orders me to do, I will do.

NDTV: That's a very politically correct answer. But what does it actually mean? Does it mean DMK, AIADMK, or the Congress?

Rajni: Actually, God has given me a role to play, an actor's role. If he gives me a politician's role, definitely I will do it.

NDTV: Okay, so you are not ruling that out?

Rajni: I told you: destiny.

NDTV: Someone from the Hindi film fraternity will ask questions: Karan Johar?
Karan Johar: Who do you regard as actor par excellence in the Bombay film fraternity?
Rajni: Amitabh Bachchan.

NDTV: You have said earlier that you are the Badshah but he is the Shahenshah. There is another Badshah in the audience. Shah Rukh wants to ask Rajni a question.

Shah Rukh: What does one do to become Shahenshah, sir?

Rajni: I am telling you, Shah Rukh, you will one day become Shahenshah.

NDTV: Do you want to ask Shah Rukh a question, or say something to him?

Rajni: He is an excellent actor. One thing I like about him is his integrity. He is very serious to promote our Indian sports, like hockey. Hats off to you. I saw that picture, Chak De. I will try to do that kind of a role, Shah Rukh.

Shah Rukh: Thank you sir. But I notice that you are just talking about my sports and not my acting. Anyway, God bless you and it is an honour and a wonderful thing to have you here in our midst.

TAMILNADU WAITING FOR HIS REGIME

Allow rajini sir to take his discussion. His contribution to Tamil film is simply amazing and unbeatable.He has given his heart and soul to tamil cinema. His first innings as actor was highly successful which converted his genius status to legendary status and atlast he became the lynchpin of tamil film industry. It is upto rajini sir to decide whether he needs to have second innings politics. There is no hard and fast rule that he has come to politics to serve the people. He has been serving very well to the people upto now it even though he has not come to centre stage. He has always proved that he is of the tamil people,for the tamil people and by the tamil people living in India and abroad

Hi,

You have missed an important comment still I remember asked by KaranJohar as a question.
Good evening, sir. We are all happy to see you withus tis evening. Is there anything Rajini can't do?" For this Rajni sir was giving a smaile, immediately Prannoy Roy started to Karan," I don't think this is question?" For which Karan Johar replied, 'No, No this a compliment in question form".
The Awe from others is well expressed by this comment.
