8 Sep – Tamil superstar Rajinikanth recently admitted that he had actually wanted to make a guest appearance in Mani Ratnam's upcoming epic film, "Ponniyin Selvan".
The "Annaathe" star, who appeared alongside Kamal Haasan at the trailer launch for the movie in Chennai, shared that he was refused by its filmmaker Mani Ratnam when he came up with the idea.
"I asked Mani Ratnam to give me Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar. I said I'll do a special appearance. Mani asked me 'Do you want me to get bashed by your fans?' Anyone else would have agreed, but Mani didn't. That's Mani Ratnam," he said.
