The last time the two giants of South Cinema, Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth, were seen together was in Geraftar (1985) and Alavudeenum Arpudha Vilakum (1979). The two haven’t worked together since then. But the fans of the two matinee idols can rejoice now as the two are again coming together but not for a film but for a cricket match organised by South Indian Artistes’ Association aka Nadigar Sangam.
The match will be played in Chennai on April 10 to raise funds constructing the Nadigar Sangam building.
“Right now, we have Rs 48 lakh in cash and we have borrowed Rs 2 crore from the bank. To raise more funds to complete the building, we are conducting this celebrity cricket match. The entire Tamil film fraternity will come together for this initiative and the event will be attended by Rajini sir and Kamal sir,” said a source from Nadigar Sangam.
While Rajinikanth is busy juggling between the sets of Kabali and 2.o, Kamal is prepping for his bilingual project.
