MUMBAI: ‘Talaash’ director Reema Kagti has completely denied news of Rajnikanth doing an item song in the Aamir Khan starrer. “Not true,” the director said.
Says a source, “At the moment Rajniji is completely involved with every department of his new film ‘Kochadaiyyan’. He is not even looking at doing any other work. He spends all his time with the post-production team. He is helping his daughter (Soundarya) with the editing, mixing, background score. Most of all, Rajniji wants to make sure that the special effects for the action sequences come out perfectly. For that Rajniji insists on flying out with the technical team to London each time they need to work on the effects.”
Rajnikant’s associate says, “At first Rajniji’s family took the rumours of an item song in their stride. But now, we read somewhere that Aamir Khan is keen to get Rajniji to do an appearance because Rajniji did the same for ‘Ra.One’. This is getting absurd. The special appearance in ‘Ra.One’ was done as a very special favour to Shah Rukh. It doesn’t mean Rajniji would be play the item boy for every Khan in Bollywood.”
