Akshay Kumar praises rajinikanth
Akshay Kumar, who also at the launch was all praises for Rajini. “Rajini Sir is known for his exuberant mannerisms — whether it comes to walking with swag or wearing glasses in style, no one can match his calibre. But he is also known for being the most humble man. I remember when one of his films titled Baba did not do well at the box office, Rajini Sir called the producer and returned all his money.”
