Superstar Rajinikanth aka Thalaiva once shared a memory in 2010 while addressing to a press conference, the statements from the incidents were so hilarious that it left the listeners to burst out laughing. Rajnikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan worked on their project titled ‘Robot’. Aishwarya Rai played female lead along with Rajnikanth. Rajnikanth said in a press conference “I am not exaggerating. I had gone to visit my brother in Bangalore. Near by, a Rajasthani tenant had come. He came to see me when he got to know I was there. He was 60 plus. He greeted and asked, ‘What happened to your hair?’,” I said, ‘Arey, jhad gaye yaar chodo (My hair has fallen off).’ He asked if I have retired. So, told him that I am working on a film called Robot. Later, I told him Aishwarya Rai was the heroine.”

Rajnikanth said that when he revealed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s name the fan got excited “He said Aishwarya heroine? Kamaal ki ladki hai yaar, fantastic. Hero kaun?” Thalaivar was stumped by this question and his reaction made everyone laugh out loud. Rajinikanth revealed that he was in disbelief of being Aishwarya opposite the megastar as the Darbar actor continued, “For 10 minutes, he didn’t say anything but kept staring at me. After he left, I heard him saying, ‘Kya hogaya Aishwarya Rai ji ko? Abhishek Bachchan ko kya hogaya? Amitabh Bachchan ji ko kya hogaya? Heroine? Iske saath?’ So, thank you Aishwarya ji.”

Talking about Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth said that he acknowledge him a lot, he said he is a friend a guru “inspiration, role model and guru” and said, “I cannot forgot those times when I acted with you in Andha kanoon, Giraftaar and Hum. How much love and affection you showed on me, I cannot forget those times.”
