While Balki is trying to keep the details of his yet-to-be released Amitabh Bachchan-Dhanush starrer under wraps, reports suggest that Dhanush’s character in Shamitabh, Danish, has a striking resemblance to his father-in-law, Rajnikanth.
A source close to the unit informed that before Danish becomes an actor, he does odd jobs to make ends meet, one of them being that of a bus conductor. “It’s no secret that Rajinikanth too started off as a bus conductor before going on to become the South supremo. Danish’s career graph also follows a pattern similar to Rajini sir’s though it never reaches the insane levels of super-stardom,” the source added.
Confirming the same, Balki said, “It wasn’t a conscious decision to incorporate this detail into the screenplay. It is purely incidental.”
