At the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the South Indian Stunt Directors and Actors Union, Rajinikanth said: “My doors will always be open for you. Feel free to approach for any assistance”. The actor added that he is aware of stunt actors’ dedication in film shoots but they should also equally concentrate on their children’s education and parenting.
“In my early days, I always look out for the number of action scenes in films. In cinema, only stunt actors shed blood for their work”, added Rajinikanth, who also recalled an interesting coincidence that the Golden Jubilee of South Indian Stunt Directors and Actors Union is happening in the centenary year of MGR, who inaugurated the union.
“Even after moving out of the cinema, MGR paid monthly salary to a lot of stunt actors”, remembered Rajinikanth. Mohanlal, Sivakumar, Suriya, Dhanush, Sivakarthikeyan, Vijay Sethupathi, Jayam Ravi, Arya, Karthi, Aishwarya, Soundarya and many others graced the event.
