Mumbai: Rajinikanth and Shatrughan Sinha may have worked together only once, 26 years ago in K C Bokadias 'Asli Naqli', but they have remained close friends ever since. The friendship assumes even more significance given their recent health scares and stints in the hospital, as well as their perception in their fans eyes, who see their acting styles as splitting images of one another.
A source close to Rajinikanth says, First, it was Rajini sir who fell ill. Then Sinha. Throughout one anothers hospitalisation theyve been monitoring each others progress through their respective wives. Rajinikanth has apparently gone a little further. Based on his own experience during his illness and healing, he has given the Shotgun pointers on his post-illness diet and regimen.A source close to Shatrughan Sinha says, Since Shatrujis hospitalisation, Rajini sir has been religiously calling from Chennai and asking his wife about his health. Its not just about them being old colleagues and friends. Rajini Sir feels a close empathy for Mr Sinha because of their sudden health issues that landed them in hospital. Now we hear Rajinikanth will be flying down to Mumbai in the next week or so to specially meet his friend. Confirming his impending visit to Mumbai, a very close friend of Shatru said, on condition of anonymity, Both Rajini and Shatru are Sagittarians.Rajini calls Shatru his Guru because he watched all of Shatrus films when Rajini was a newcomer. Rajini has watched Shatru in Rampur Ka Lakshman 36 times to get a full grip on his mannerisms and gestures in the role. The two are very close to one another. Rajini was waiting for Shatru to come home from hospital. He will now be flying down to spend some time with the actor.
