He also apologised for being unable to attend the funeral of his "old and dear" friend, owing to his hectic schedule.

Going down the memory lane, Rajnikanth told reporters, "Once I got an offer from a Tamil film Producer, as well as, from a Kannada producer simultaneously. I was in a dilemma, and didn't know which offer to choose. It was Vishnu who advised me to take up the Tamil film.
