Thankful to technical director Soundarya Rajinikanth for helping out with the Rajini’s cameo appearance in the film, SRK said that he is humbled by her graciousness. On Rajinikanth, the star said that he is one person who has proved that to be a Superstar one has to be a humble human being at first.
