Rajinikath spoke at that function, he said, “I like BharathiRaja very much. He likes me, but in his old interviews, when journalists used to ask him his opinion on me as an actor, he would say, ‘He is a good human being.’ But He never accepted me as a good actor. I could always read his mind voice, ‘How do people accept him as an actor?, and also he says. Bharathiraja asked for his ‘time’ only on two occasions in his four-decade-long career. “First was the call sheet for ’16 Vayadhinile’. The second is to attend this function.”
