Actor Sampath Raj will soon be seen alongside Tamil superstar Rajinikanth in the eagerly-awaited ‘Kaala’. And, as expected, he is quite excited sharing screen space with the living legend. During a recent chat with Behindwoods, the ‘Goa’ actor praised Rajini and said that he is humility personified.
“I am happy to be working with him. It is very good. He is extremely down to earth. You go with an idea of him being the superstar, but he is so simple. I think that’s what makes him the superstar,” he added.
He went on to add that he has been a fan of Thalaiva’s work right from childhood and has often fought with other fans to get hold of movie tickets.
“For two things I have really struggled hard, one is probably to get his movie tickets and next is trying to get question papers to write next day’s exams (Laughs). Both were very difficult,” quipped Sampath.
Well, we are happy for him and hope that he makes an impact with his performance in ‘Kaala’.
In case you did not know, ‘Kaala’ is touted to be a crime-drama and features Rajini in the role of a gangster. A Pa Ranjith directorial, it is being produced by Dhanush and may hit screens this year. Besides Rajinikanth, it features Huma Qurershi in the lead. Bollywood actor Nana Patekar in the lead. He will be playing a negative role in this one.
