Rajinikanth ended 2017 with a bang by announcing his decision to enter politics. His contemporary and his colleague, Kamal Haasan congratulated and welcomed Superstar Rajiniknath’s decision. Kamal Haasan told ANI, “I congratulate my brother Rajini for his social consciousness and his political entry. Welcome welcome.” Earlier Haasan reportedly hinted that he was willing to work with Rajinikanth if the superstar ever decided to enter politics. Rajini entered films in 1975 film, ‘Apoorva Rangapal​’ which also starred Haasan in the lead. The two biggest superstars went on to share screen space in over 13 films, which is a huge number for stars of their stature. Earlier in an interview to NDTV, Kamal Haasan said, “We have been taught to look in unison. We are like a 3D camera. We are been trained by K Balachander. Fortunately, even though we are stiff competitors we have stayed brothers. We carved out our own domain. We were so wise that we were made to act in many films. We have done 13 films together and then we realised they are splitting up our remuneration and giving it. That’s when it hit us, if we go separate, we can each earn the amount they pay the two of us.” After 1985’s Geraftaar, the duo announced they won’t act together again.
