I called home today and here is what happened –
Appa – News theriyuma, AVM Rajini Shankar sendhu padam panndraangalaam.
Me – Oh !! theriumpaa. Inikku karthaalaye therium.
Appa – Padam peru Sivaji.
Me – Ennathu ? Sivaji-ya.
Appa – Sivaji [ganesan] oda first padam Parasakthi eduthathu AVM thaan. Athanaala Sivaji nyabhakarthama vechutaanga.
Me – Yaaru sonaanga ? Chumma kathai vidathapa.
Appa – Dina thanthi-la pottirukaan.
Me – Appidiya. Iru naan online-la pakaraen.
Appa – Athanaala Sivaji nyabhakarthama vechutaanga. Sivaji nyabhakarthama vechutaanga.
He repeated Athanaala Sivaji nyabhakarthama vechutaanga more than thrice. He is a long-time die-hard Sivaji fan. Me a die-hard Rajini fan. This is yet another point where we both agree on a same thing with regards to movies. Not that I hate Sivaji still I belong to the Rajini generation. He was so happy for Chandramukhi crossing 100 days with 50 crores. That was because Sivaji Films produced it.
Daily Thanthi adds to the gossip that Rajini/Shankar/AVM movie is named Sivaji. Seems like its named as a tribute to Sivaji as AVM produced Sivaji’s first movie Parasakthi. It would be silly if I highlight that Rajini is a Sivaji himself. Sivajikkey Sivajiya !!
