RGV: If Amitabh Bachchan does Robot, it will do far better

Rajinikanth in RobotThe top posts on social media from your favourite Bollywood celebrities: 

Amitabh Bachchan's TE3N may have flopped at the box office but Ram Gopal Varma is all praise for his performance.

In a series of tweets, RGV wrote: 'After seeing fantastic performance of @SrBachchan in Te3n my only complaint is he shouldn't waste it in non heroic roles like in Rann etc. Evry star in evry language whether Chiranjeevi in telugu or Rajnikant in Tamil understood @SrBachchan and he himself dint understand himself.'

'In pursuit of versiatality and expanding the horizons of performances @SrBachchan stepped outside his stardom to advance cinema. My belief as a Rajni fan is If @SrBachchan does Robot it will do far far better and if @superstarrajini does Te3n it will do far far lesser,' he added.

'And even @superstarrajini sir will not dispute my claims about @SrBachchan ..Te3N,Black,Piku etc will be a joke with Rajni in them. Bottomline is if @superstarrajini does Te3n it wil b 1 nd if @SrBachchan does Kabali it will be 100..I want @superstarrajini to answer. I love @superstarrajini sir for effect and @SrBachchan for content n only Rajni sir will understand becos both me n Rajni sir love B,' he signed off.

 

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has completed 100 days of shooting for his film 2.0 in Chennai.
