Superstar Rajinikanth was in Mumbai on December 16 to promote the Hindi version of his upcoming film Darbar. Contrary to the rumors, Darbar is a commercial film and not a political venture, directed by AR Murugadoss. Darbar will release across the world on January 10.
Thalaivar was in a happy mood while interacting with the press and shared a lot of interesting anecdotes about his life. One of the journalists asked Rajinikanth about his equation with Bollywood's Big B Amitabh Bachchan.
Calling Amitabh Bachchan an inspiration on and off-screen, Rajinikanth opened up about the three pieces of advice that Big B gave him. He also stated that out of the three pieces of advice he could only follow two because of the circumstances.
He said, "Amitabhji told me 'Rajini, three things you do, I am telling you what I am doing.' First, do exercise regularly. Second, be busy. 'Don't worry about what people say. After getting up ('in the morning) get out of the house. And the third, 'don't enter politics.' Two things I followed, but the third I could not follow because of the circumstances."
