Fight over Rajini's biopic
After Atul Agnihotri, now the South superstar's family intends to make a film on him
The face-off over Rajinikanth biopic has taken a turn for the worse.
To counter the film being made on the South superstar by producer Atul Agnihotri without their consent, Rajini's family is now planning to go ahead with their own biopic on the actor.
In fact, Rajini's daughter Soundarya has been urgently trying to reach Atul to no avail. "I've tried to contact Atul Agnihotri, but I haven't got any response.
We have not authorised anyone to do a biopic on my father. We reserve our rights on this matter," she says, adding that she is still open to discussing the matter with the producer.
Interestingly, in a recent interview Atul reportedly said, "There is a huge responsibility involved in making a film on Rajinikanth. We need his approval and contribution.
Making a film on him will be an enriching experience for us."
His apparent reluctance to resolve the matter with the family, therefore, is surprising. When contacted, both Atul as well as the film's director Lloyd Baptista were unavailable for comment.
