Vishnuvardhan helped me get stardom: Rajnikanth
The superstar called on Vishnuvardhan's wife Bharati at her residence, offered his condolences and recounted his close association with Vishnuvardhan.
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.
