Chennai. To feel the pulse of the kabali fever at the capital city, Faking News visited the southern city on Sunday, to meet and chat with the fans. An amazing fact unearthed during the interviews that 90% of the Rajini fans believe that the Rajini jokes, in the Internet, are true. Faking News gives a sample interview here.
FN: Mr. Rajini Murugan, did you see the movie?
RM: 10 times since the release. For me, a movie break is the break between two screenings. You got me at the right time!
FN: Wow! It’s because of people like you, there are abundant Rajini jokes in the Internet.
RM: What jokes?
FN: Jokes like ‘Rajini can count up to infinity!’
RM: These are not jokes. These are recorded facts!
FN: Excuse me!
RM: Will tell you an incident. Then you will know. It was a 2 hour visit to Rajini sir’s home by a few of us. So, it is a long story! Will try to tell all that I can remember. Ok?
Rajini sir appeared like lightning in front of us and right then we realised the thing about him and the lightning is true. There was a TV on and an English movie Twister something was running but nothing could disturb our focus on the star. Not even the reflection of the TV on the glass doors of the living room. Our dialogue began and Rajini sir mostly listened to us and spoke very briefly in between. However, once in about 3 to 5 minutes he was saying ‘infinity’. In two hours, he would have said this too many times, we lost count. Later when we read in the net that ‘Rajini can count up to infinity twice’, we knew that the observer spent only less than 10 minutes with our Thalaivar.
And the other thing. Sir is so simple. He does not wear a watch. Several times, his personal assistant intervened our conversation with questions to sir. Thalaivar always told him the definitive replies: tea time, lunchtime and sleeping time etc. Somebody noticed this too and wrote that ‘Rajini does not wear a watch. He decides what time it is’. How true!
His cook, a girl by the name Victoria, served us coffee. Sir praised her saying ‘I know your secret. You added more sugar. But you gotta reduce salt and sugar in life; hahaha!’ This also came in the net that ‘Rajini knows Victoria’s secret’.
At the end of two hours, he changed the movie to a cartoon channel and finally switched off everything and left. The place became so dead. I guess on these observations also two facts were recorded that ‘Rajini can kill a living room’ and ‘Once a tornado came in his way and seeing him, it changed course’; they are mistaken. Rajini changed the course of a tornado in one button click. These things you are calling as jokes? You must be kidding. These are facts. Only a blessed few had witnessed these rare acts live and in person.
FN: Thank you Mr. Murugan.
Faking news conducted another secret survey among linguistic experts to find out what Mr. Rajinikanth would have repeated every three minutes which sounds like infinity and no one has figured that out yet, until this post has gone for publication.
