Vastavam web: Director Karthik Subbaraj today revealed that his 2014 film “Jigarthanda” helped him fulfil his dream of working with South superstar Rajinikanth.The director said he wanted to cast the actor in the film but was too scared to approach him as he was a budding filmmaker at that time.But when Rajinikanth saw “Jigarthanda”, he praised the director and said he felt as if he was watching himself on the screen. They are now set to work on an action drama.
“Interestingly, when Rajini sir saw the film, he liked it and when we met he told Bobby and me that while he was watching ‘Jigarthanda’ he felt he was seeing himself on-screen,” Karthik told.”…He told me whenever you have any role for me just approach me… I did not know whether he will do a film with a director who is just one film old or not. When I saw that he worked with Pa Ranjith on ‘Kabali’, who is two-film-old, I became confident.” Talking about the project, he said, “This is a realistic film but it will have elements of Rajini sir. It is a fictional story. He loved the script.” Karthik understands that directing a project like this comes with a huge responsibility.
