Rajinikanth tells that Kabali will not be like Baasha

Superstar Rajinikanth recently spoke at the 90th birthday celebration of politician RM Veerappan who had also produced a lot of movies. Excerpts of Superstar's speech follow:


“In my earlier days, there was a challenge thrown at me if I could watch a FDFS of my Vaadhyaar MGR's film. Naan Aanaiyittal produced by RM Veerappan had released then. There were different ranges in ticket rates, starting from 65 paise, Rs 1.10 and Rs 2.10 balcony. 65 paise was only my range. I stood in the queue early in the morning, got the ticket after lots of toil and saw the film. Later, after I became a star, I acted in RMV sir's production, Raanuva Veeran. Baasha was also RMV sir's production.


Now I am working in Kabali and people ask me if Kabali would be like Baasha. For all those who ask this question, I tell this, Kabali will not be like Baasha. Please don’t expect that. There is no chance to make such a film again. Such films can be made by people like RM Veerappan only. I am not saying this because I am attending this function. He is the person who is responsible for the massive success of Baasha. The more I moved with RMV, my respects towards him keep rising. He is such an intelligent, well-mannered and disciplined person. He is in fact the personification of Kadamai, Kanniyam, Kattuppadu.


There is nobody to beat AVM Saravanan when it comes to planning a film, doing business with it and projecting it in the right manner. But if you give a mass hero to RMV sir, you can’t beat him in the way he makes the film a super-duper hit”.


This speech and Superstar's pictures from the event are going viral since the past day or so.
