Rajinikanth rejects IIFA award
The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) award ceremony, which is considered to be Bollywood's equivalent to the Oscar award, was recently held at Yorkshire, England. The show, a tremendous success as always, was hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, who is the IIFA ambassador.
Little did we all know that the IIFA decided to felicitate Superstar Rajinikanth with a special award, for his tremendous popularity among Tamil-speaking audiences across the world and his incomparable fan following. In fact the idea to award Rajini was mooted by none other than Amitabh Bachchan himself.
But Rajinikanth is said to have turned down the offer humbly. In a recent interview Big B admitted this news, "It's true we wanted to honor Rajinikanth at Yorkshire this year, but unfortunately he could not make it due to the release of Sivaji - The Boss. But we will someday, for he deserves many distinctions." Getting such a word of praise from Big B, whom Rajini considers his idol is indeed bigger than any awards.
