Speaking of his days when he wished to touch the feet of late Dr Rajkumar, the Kabali actor said, “I was about 14-15 years when Rajkumar had come to attend the 100 days celebration of his film. When I saw him for the first time, the images of his on-screen started running in my mind and I forgot that I was seeing him in real. I went and touched his feet. So, I can understand your feelings,” adding that, “And we have to touch the feet of elders who have experienced the good and bad in their lives.” ALSO READ: (Rajinikanth Birthday: Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Dhanush Post Wishes – Check Tweets) Also Read - Stylish Chaiwala in Nagpur Serves Tea With an Unbeatable Swag, Says He's Inspired by Rajinikanth | Watch Video
