And where the two meet
Rajnikanth and Amitabh Bachchan are apparently spiritual - Rajni heading straight to the Himalayas to reconnect while Amitabh finds solace in his neighbourhood 'Ganesh'.
Both are professionals - directors' actors, who are not known to throw tantrums and gelling with the film crew.
Both have been largely circumnavigated the rumour mills - but for the customary flings that are attributed to every rising star.
And both have aged gracefully; they get the respect that is simply due to the two legends in Indian cinema.
