Upcoming Kannada film One Way will narrate the story of friendship between superstar Rajinikanth and Raj Bahadur. The film will also be released in Tamil as Oru Vazhi Saalai.
"The story will capture my relationship with the superstar since our theatre days. It will be about how our relationship has lasted over the years even though we've aged. I wanted to make the film with no references to Rajini, his name or photos but we couldn't avoid it," Raj told IANS.
Raj is playing one of the leads in the film, which will feature a yet-to-be-revealed actor in the role of the superstar.
"We want to keep the actor playing Rajinikanth a secret. Audiences can come to the theatres to find out who has played the role. We are not trying to cash in on Rajini's popularity but use it to send across strong message to the society through the film," he said.
The film, which is gearing up for release, has been directed by Rushi.
Raj said that Rajinikanth is kicked about the film and is waiting to watch it together.
"He is very excited about the film. When I had called to seek his permission, he instantly agreed to the idea and also told me that he would watch the film together when it is released," added Raj.
