Mumbai: Rajinikanth has enjoyed an unprecedented reign across the pan-Indian diaspora for the longest time. Kamal Haasan, on the contrary, is counted amongst the best actors the country has seen yet.
Rajinikanth, incidentally had debuted as a villain opposite the then chocolate hero, Kamal, in ' Apoorva Ragangal' . Their last film together was the Amitabh Bachchan starrer ' Geraftaar,' though they didn't have scenes together.
Now, over thirty years down the line, they have reunited again!
However, it's not for a film, as yet.
At a recent award show, Rajinikanth awarded Kamal with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The two, although professional rivals, have been extremely close friends ever since their first collaboration.
Though Shankar had approached Kamal for the antagonist's role in '2.0,' the coup hadn't materialised. The role ultimately went to Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar.
The two had also been quite vocal of their criticism of the Supreme Court's ban on Jallikattu.
Fans can't wait to watch the two weave their magic again, on-screen....
