When Amitabh Bachchan Greeted Rajinikanth
The two greats recently met at the opening ceremony of the International Film Festival of India
When Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Amitabh Bachchan) meets the Thalaiva (Rajinikanth), what more could hold the interest of onlookers? That’s exactly what happened in Goa at the opening ceremony of the International Film Festival of India.
When Rajinikanth was awarded the Centenary Award for the Film Personality of the Year, he shocked everyone by what he did next... The emotional Rajini bent down to touch Amitabh Bachchan’s feet and referred to him as his “big brother”. In his speech, he said, "I actually came to receive this award but not to make a speech and that too after Amitji's excellent speech (on the history of Indian cinema) I have no words to speak. I am honoured to receive this award from the Government of India and my heartfelt thanks to the nation. I dedicate this award to all my film producers, directors and fans.”
Perhaps that’s something our lead actors of today can learn from these two legends – mutual respect and graciousness!
