SuperStar Rajinikanth is one of the biggest and most successful names in the Tamil film industry today. He enjoys a god-like fan following thanks to charismatic personality, larger-than-life screen presence and remarkable versatility as a performer.
Recently, it was reported that the 2.0 trailer is going to focus more on Akshay Kumar and less on Rajinikanth. And, as expected, this ruffled a few feathers. Now, the shocking reason behind this decision has been revealed.The makers decided to make the Akshay Kumar, the focus of the trailer, once they realised that they had ‘overestimated’ Rajini’s star power.
The makers realised Akshay is a bigger star than ‘Thalaiva’ in the Hindi belt and hence decided to make his character the focal point of the trailer.
The producers overestimated Rajini’s star power. They forgot he doesn’t have a strong market in North India, that in fact Akshay Kumar is a bigger star in the Hindi belt. The second trailer will spotlight Akshay’s character.Follow @THEPANIPURI
