Rajnikanth vs. Amitabh Bachchan
If the buzz is to be believed, the next Rajnikanth film, 'Rana', will not only have the superstar in three roles but will also have the towering Big B to add to the star power. That Rajnikanth's earlier year hits are unabashed remakes of Amitabh Bachchan is not a secret.
And the two superstars from the north and south of India are not coming together for the first time. From 'Andha Kanoon' to 'Giraftar', the two have shared on-screen chemistry. But the times were different. Rajnikanth was just another south Indian actor; oh yeah, he also lit cigarettes with bullets from his gun.
Today, Rajnikanth stands at the enviable position of having led India to a frenzy of sheer stardom, notching last year's biggest grosser, 'Endhiran'.
But when the two stars come together, it would also be interesting to chart their on-screen and off-screen personae, and how they have set their own niches - appealing to some, left impressed on others.
Here's comparing the two legends. Read it, and pick your man.
