Rajinikanth's lucky actor

Vinu Chakravarthy in a function held in Erode wherein he was presented with the coveted ‘lifetime achievement award’ for serving the film industry for close to four decades made a statement regarding superstar Rajinikanth. He said “I’m always referred to as the ‘lucky token’ by superstar Rajinikanth. I have starred in 25 films with him and all those films have turned out to be super-duper hits. Rajini believed that if I’m cast in his film, the film would be a success. I’m thankful to him for that belief.


Chakravarthy criticised popular television and film producer Ekta Kapoor for her depiction of Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture, a recent biographical film on the actress. He also expressed displeasure over Ekta Kapoor's choice of casting. He also said Silk Smitha had wide expressive, inviting eyes, which Vidya Balan does not have.
