Sivakarthikeyan sadly mentioned that his salary for Rajini Murugan was minus Rs 50 Lakhs. Ponram had directed the film Rajini Murugan which had Sivakarthikeyan, Soori, Kirthi Suresh, Raj Kiran and Samuthirakani in the cast. Thirupathi Brothers have produced the film.
The film which was under financial crisis for a long time was released for Pongal. The film has immense response amongst the audience and is also yielding good profits.
Sivakarthikeyan while speaking about the release of the film said, “ Rajini Murugan is one of the important films in my career. Though the shooting was completed long time ago, it could not be released due to various problems.
To tell you the truth I did not sleep for the last 10 months. I slept only on the date of the film release. I am in no way responsible for any financial problems but I did forgo my salary. At one point of time my salary became minus Rs 50 lakhs. The reason for acting in the films is to make my people and fans happy. I should also earn a good name.
I never felt salary was important for me. My family also did not ask me about the salary. My wife asked me to buy her an I Phone. She was not interested in house and car. In future I will see that no financial crisis takes place in the films I act. I never aimed for Kamal or Rajini’s place. They have given numerous commercial hits.
The shades of these films might be there in my films. I would like to act in the remake of Rajini starrer Thillu Mullu. I give importance to act in comedy and romance liked by the children. Next I am acting in a film directed by debutante director Bhagyaraj. I am donning three getups in the film. There will no moustache in one getup. I am ready to act in the films produced by Dhanush.”
