After Akshay Kumar, looks like superstar Rajinikanth is set to work with another Bollywood stalwart – Salman Khan. It is rumoured that producer Rockline Venkatesh, who is responsible for helming hits like Rajinikanth’s Linga and Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, is planning a project that will star both the actors. As of now, however, there has been no official conformation of this rumour and Salman is busy with his upcoming Tubelight, while Rajinikanth is promoting 2.0.
Incidentally, Salman had gatecrashed the first look event of 2.0 earlier this month. According to the Sultan star, “I wasn’t invited. I heard they were doing this and I decided to come to meet Rajini Garu. He is a most amazing man and I have a lot of respect for him.” When asked if the Kabali actor would work with Sallu, he replied, “If Salman says ‘yes,’ I’m ready to begin the picture tomorrow.” Now, it looks like that might actually be coming true. And with both the actors having such great respect for each other, behind-the-scenes videos from this upcoming project of the two stars gushing over each other would sure be a treat.
If the collaboration does happen, we can expect great fan response with the teaming of the two mega-stars of the north and south. This has clearly been the case with 2.0, which is directed by Shankar, that has gotten both Akshay’s and Rajinikanth’s fans excited ever since the news was announced last year, according to a report in India Today.
