Only one Chiru, one Nag, one Balakrishna: Rajinikanth

Speaking at the 'Kaala' event in Hyderabad, Rajinikanth was at his humble best. "Dhanush was just saying that there can only be one Rajinikanth. For that matter, there is only one Chiranjeevi, one Nagarjuna, one Venkatesh and one Balakrishna. Everybody is unique. Everybody has their own individuality. Nobody is bigger than others. Only opportunity makes us what we are. We have to make use of the opportunities. Those who believe in God attribute it to God. Those who don't, they attribute it to luck. I deem every opportunity as God-given," the Superstar remarked.

He thanked the Telugu audience for showering love on him as much as the Tamil audience. "This is my fortunate," Rajini said.

He recalled his Telugu films in earlier years by mentioning 'Anthu Leni Katha' and others. "I got a break (after many years) in Telugu with the film 'Peda Rayudu', thanks to Mohan Babu. The audience here has accepted me in films like 'Basha', 'Mutthu', 'Narasimha', 'Robot', 'Shivaji' and others," the 'Kaala' star said.

He noted, "When NTR garu was alive, I would meet him to take blessings whenever I was to Hyderabad. I miss him today. You know why (indirectly referring to his political debut). I also miss Balachander garu and Dasari Narayana Rao garu. They loved me the way they would love a child," he added.

"There was a time when I was confused as to whether to focus on Telugu industry or Tamil industry. Since I had debuted in Tamil, I continued there," the actor said.
