Should Chiru, Balakrishna learn from him?

Rajinikanth has been cast in the role of a thoroughgoing old man in 'Kaala'.  He has played his age (though not exact).  Pa.Ranjith has even cast a character artist (Eesari Rao) to play his wife.   

The Superstar has now been praised for daring to put brakes on his superstardom in favour of realistic (at least partially) roles.  He had done it with 'Kabali' itself.  Rajini recently went to the extent of saying that he shouldn't have romanced Sonakshi Sinha in 'Lingaa', for she is an actress much younger than him.  

In this scenario, a feeling is that Telugu superstars like Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna too should take a leaf out of Rajini's book.  "They should learn from their Kollywood counterpart the kind of roles they have to play in the movies.  Rajini acts as a father and grandfather being the main hero also and there are Chiru and Balayya who act as unmarried single guys feeling shy to get married!" says one The Dude on Twitter.
