Superstar Rajinikanth wishes to play a transgender
Mumbai: Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, who will be seen playing the lead role in the upcoming movie Darbar, recently expressed that he would love to play the character of a transgender in a film.
In an interview during the trailer launch of the movie in Mumbai, the Thalaiva said that with 160 films in his 45 years of film career, he has received the privilege of playing almost all the genres. It just spontaneously stuck him during the interview that he would love to explore the character of a transgender if given an opportunity. He also said that doing a Marathi film is also in his wish list, as his roots are from Maharashtra.
The superstar will be seen playing the character of a cop after 27 years. When asked about the reason for not playing a cop’s role in movies for so long, the actor said it is a serious role demanding a huge sense of responsibility and he loves to play entertaining characters more. He only agreed for ‘Darbar’ because director Murugadoss approached him with a good subject.
Rajinikanth and his entire star cast are excited about the release of the latest action thriller, which is scheduled to release worldwide on January 10 next year. The film will be released in four languages- Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi
