Just saw on a news channel.
The Superstar is "nervous" to know the result of the movie
How does he look so young, blond hair et al?
"Ask Shankar, its a trade secret" followed by a disarming grin. He says "I am just an actor, AVM and the Director Shankar have worked so hard on this movie"
I almost collapsed when I heard him say "I am just an actor" (!!!)
The movie has a message for educationists, youngsters, the politicians, everyone.
He is "touched with the amount of love and admiration that his fans are showing. They are such innocent people and shouting their love for me" There was an intercut of his fans eating off the soil, a typical Kovil Vendudal, people piercing the 'Vel' through their mouths, and the Superstar's eyes became moist.
He said to the reporter, that all the hype is because it is created by people like you in the media.
And another channel likened him to Big B, and he says it "disturbs him" because he considers himself a follower, a fan and admirer, and does not want to be likened to a "Giant" like Big B.
And the news reporter in the studios was astounded with the humility he exhibited.
Disclaimer: I am in a state of utmost euphoria, a zillion butterflies in my stomach before I watch the movie. What is written here is not a verbatim recount of the interview. Only whatever has reached my sensory register is given here.
