Shankar says Rajini was the initial choice for ‘Indian’

‘Rajini was the one chosen for ‘Indian’ movie.  But later Kamal was cast in the movie’, said director Shankar. Regarding this Shankar answered question raised by a reader in ‘Vigadan Medai’ which is as follows:

‘Not many know that I related the ‘Indian’ story to Rajini initially.  But since that venture was at its initial stage and as the story and screenplay were not complete then, Rajini hesitated.

 ‘After completion of the movie ‘Indian’ I gave Rajini a preview of the movie.  After the movie was over Rajini rushed towards me and hugged me.  He said ‘Super... You did not tell me this much about the movie as I saw now’

If you keenly note the Indian Grandpa at time of interval, you can see him lying in a couch and pushing Nedumudi Venu. Then he applies the ‘Varmakalai’ (martial arts) and places the cloth in a stylish way over his shoulder.  Then he combs the tousled hair stylishly.

Kamal Sir does not know that this is a scene which I depicted keeping in mind Rajini.  Kamal did it in a totally different and inimitable manner’

Also Shankar quoted Rajini as saying ‘I am not sorry about doing ‘Mudhalvan’ even... I really missed out ‘Indian’.
