Kamal Hassan Rajinikanth
The centenary celebrations (100 years) of Indian cinema kicked-off on a grand note at Chennai’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on 21 September. 
Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa handed over an award to Rajinikanth during the inauguration of centenary celebrations on Indian Cinema oragnised by the Government of Tamilnadu and South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce.

Speaking at the function Rajinikanth said “I thank the chief minister, for organizing a function of such grandeur. I’m also thankful to Kamal and my fans. I have always been a great fan of Kamal Haasan. We have starred together in 7-8 films; Kamal was as fluent as only he can be whereas I tried my best to match him. On this historic occasion, I also want to thank my mentor K. Balachander and the many producers, directors, distributors and theatre-owners who contributed in no small measure to my rise to the top in Tamil films.”

“I felt amazed by MGR’s Adimai Penn and Nadodi Mannan, Sivaji’s Thiruvilayadal and Saraswathi Sabatham, etc. I pay floral tributes to those who worked in such films and are now no more with us. Kamal is another legend amid us who has been in the film industry for 55 years now. Nobody can attempt (to act) in his films such as Apoorva Sagodharargal and Dasavatharam,” he further added.
