Paying heed to stringent opposition from Rajinikanth fans to his new sobriquet Makkal Superstar, Raghava Lawrence has come forward to forego it.
In a statement, he said, “Hi Friends and Fans! Hope you are all enjoying the movie Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva. The Director had told me that he would spring me a big surprise in the movie.”
“Today it was a huge surprise to see the title ‘Makkal Super Star’ in my name in the movie. I would like to state that I do not feel I deserve this title and I can only say that there is and can only be one super star and that is our Thalaivar Rajinikanth,” he said.
“I am a huge fan of Super Star Rajinikanth. It is he who introduced me to this film industry. And I first saw my Raghavendra Swamy in him.
I am absolutely grateful to him in every way. I will forever remain a fan of him. I have chosen my own title for my name and it will be that of my mother.
I will henceforth be called Kanmani Raghava Lawrence in my forth coming movies! Nothing can bring me more happiness than my mother’s name. No title can be equal to this!,” he concluded.
