IBN - Live - Rajnikanth attends 'Kumki' audio launch

Rajnikanth attends 'Kumki' audio launch

Shutterbugs, scribes and those gathered at the 'Kumki' audio launch were in for a super big surprise as the Superstar Rajinikanth was the Surprise Guest at the audio launch of the film!
Although it was known that Kamal Haasan and Suriya will unveil the audio, Rajini's arrival was maintained a secret until the last minute.
"I am avoiding most of the functions as all my fans and those from the film fraternity are important for me and if I come for one and don't for another it will not be right and I haven't yet completely recovered from my sickness, so I prefer taking rest whenever I can", started off the Superstar.
"However Prabhu came home and left an invitation even after expressing I won't be able to make it, when I telephoned and asked him why he did that despite knowing I wont be able to come, he said that as a thambi (younger brother) its his duty to invite me and its upto me to make it or not. I understood of how important it is for me to make it for Sivaji's grandson's launch film's audio release", said Rajini.
He further added, "When you receive too much of anything in life, you don't know how to give back, its better to avoid taking debt than wondering how to give it back.
He was all praises for his dear friend Kamal Haasan and how he has made Tamil cinema proud by being approached by Hollywood filmmaker, read Barrie Osborne. Kamal in turn praised Vikram Prabhu for making his debut through Kumki, where he has worked with an elephant (considered auspicious) and assured that although there's a lot of pressure on him since he hails from Sivaji Ganesan's family, the film industry will stand by him.
The Kumki audio launch was one of the best in recent times with the big guns of industry making it to the event and hailing the film and the stars wholeheartedly. Also present at the event were Karthi and Sathyaraj apart from the cast and crew.

One of the reasons that Superstar Rajinikanthdecided to attend the Kumki audio launch was to thank his fans for supporting him through his recuperation. "I wanted to see you all in person and convey my regards," he said, "I owe it to all of you. It's because of you (the fans) that I'm standing here and talking."

When the actor had come down from Singapore post his treatment, hundreds had gathered in the airport. A lot of media men, fans and policemen blocked his car's journey forward and Rajini had to patiently sit inside and try to get out. "Rajini was pleasantly surprised by the turnout at the airport, considering that his flight landed late in the night," said a source back then.

April 29 will remain an unforgettable day for fans of the actor as it was on that day last year that he kickstarted his film, Rana, with a lot of fanfare, only to be admitted in a city hospital later that evening.

The audio-launch of director Prabhu Solomon’s upcoming directorial venture Kumki is all set for a grand release at the Sathyam Cinemas premises in Chennai next Friday (27th July).  For a variety of reasons, Kumki has been making news in the press for the past few months.  It’s Solomon’s next venture after the super-duper hit Mynaa which released in 2010.

Solomon stirred many a heart with the emotion-filled Mynaa which also gave Amala Paul her biggest break in Kollywood.  As such, expectations about Kumki have become so high.  Solomon is launching actor Prabhu’s son Vikram Prabhu as the hero in Kumki which also has a debuting heroine in Lakshmi Menon from Mollywood.

‘Ulaganayagan’ Kamal Haasan would be releasing the film’s audio which would be accepted by actor Suriya.  Vikrm had earlier met and sought superstar Rajini’s blessings.  It was then rumoured that both Rajini and Kamal might take part in the audio launch as Vikram’s father Prabhu has co-starred both the superstars in many films.

Director Lingusamy and UTV Motion Pictures have jointly produced Kumki wherein the hero plays a mahout.  Imaan has scored the film’s music.  Rajini has reportedly recorded a congratulatory message which would be played at the audio-launch.
