The ‘Rajinikanth Raj Bahadur friendship’ will now be made into a movie by Bahadur himself. The biopic – Oru Vazhi Salai – directed by Rushi, is touted to be a bilingual film. “The story will relate instances from our theatre days. I didn’t want any references to Rajini, his name or photos; but we couldn’t avoid it,” Raj Bahadur had told a leading national news agency. The actor who will be essaying the role of the Superstar is being kept under wraps.
Raj Bahadur and Rajinikanth go a long way back – Raj Bahadur was the driver of routes 10 and 10A in Bangalore while Shivaji Rao Gaekwad was the conductor. It is said that Bahadur even paid the fees for Rajinikanth’s course at Adyar Film Institute.
