Raghava lawrence talks superstar title controversy at chandramukhi 2 trailer launch rajinikanth thalapathy vijay - Tamil Movie Cinema News

For a while now, there has been chatter about who is going to be the next 'Superstar' after iconic Tamil actor Rajinikanth, with many leading names being referenced by the fans and the media. 'Thalapathy' Vijay's name has been mentioned by some on a number of occasions of late and actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence has now shared his thoughts about the controversy surrounding the 'Superstar' title issue during the trailer launch of his upcoming film, Chandramukhi 2, and shared that both Rajinikanth and Vijay have the best of intentions for each other. 

Speaking on the 'Superstar' title controversy at Chandramukhi 2 trailer launch event in Chennai on Sunday, September 3, Raghava Lawrence asked, "Did Vijay sir ask for the 'Superstar' title? Did he make an announcement anywhere that he wants the title? Whenever I go meet Vijay sir, he always asks, 'How is Thalaivar and how is his health?' So, he has a profound and the deepest respect for him." He continued, "Similarly, 'Superstar' Rajini sir speaks highly of Beast even after he was told the film was just okay. He would say the film is superb and the collections are fantastic. He would say that the people at Sun TV told him the film had done well. So, there are no problems between them. This whole issue has been raked up by some people in the middle and nothing else." Watch the video below: 

Raghava Lawrence's highly-anticipated Chandramukhi 2 also starring four-time National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut is scheduled for a grand release on September 15. The film directed by veteran South Indian filmmaker P. Vasu under the prestigious Lyca Productions banner and featuring music composed by Oscar winner M. M. Keeravani is the sequel to Chandramukhi (2005), which starred 'Superstar' Rajinikanth, Jyotika, Nayanthara, and Prabhu in the lead roles, and went on to become one of the biggest box office hits in Tamil cinema history.
