Stories that Rajinikanth is being roped in to perform a song and dance for the new Aamir Khan starrer
has Rajinikanth's camp completely flummoxed and angry. And Rajinikanth's associates tell us the mega-star is not amused.
What is more, when this writer questioned the
director Reema Kagti about the rumours that the iconic Rajinikanth is turning into an item boy for Aamir, Reema completely denied the rumour. "Not true," the beleaguered director responded.
Says a source, "So then where did this preposterous rumour start? At the moment Rajiniji is completely involved with every department of his new film
. He is not even looking at doing any other work. He spends all his time with the post-production team. He is helping his daughter (Soundarya) with the editing, mixing, background score. Most of all, Rajiniji wants to make sure that the special effects for the action sequences come out perfectly. For that he insists on flying out with the technical team to London each time they need to work on the effects."
Rajinikanth's associate says, "At first Rajniji's family took the rumours of an item song in their stride. But now the reports are getting increasingly inventive. We read somewhere that Mr Aamir Khan is keen to get Rajiniji to do an appearance because Rajniji did the same for
. This is getting absurd. The special appearance in
was done as a very special favour to Shah Rukh. It doesn't mean Rajiniji would be play the item boy for every Khan in Bollywood."
So who started this bizarre rumour anyway?
