Superstar Rajinikanth has come up with an explanation regarding the crow-eagle remark he made during the audio launch of his film 'Jailer'. The superstar denied the rumours that his remark was against actor Vijay. Rajinikanth clarified that he is not a competitor of Vijay but a well-wisher. He was speaking at the audio launch of the film 'Lal Salaam' directed by his daughter Aishwarya Rajinikanth.

"The story of the crow and the eagle was misinterpreted. Many spread the word on social media that I said it against Vijay. This is very disappointing. Vijay grew up in front of my eyes. Vijay was 13 years old when I was shooting for 'Dharmathin Thalaivan'. He used to look at me from upstairs. After the shooting, SA Chandrasekhar introduced Vijay to me. Chandrasekhar told me that Vijay was interested in acting and asked me to advise him to focus on his studies first. I then advised him to complete his schooling first," Rajinikanth said.

"Later, Vijay became an actor. Discipline, talent and hard work made Vijay reach the top. Now, he is preparing to enter politics. It hurts my heart to hear that there is competition between us. Vijay has said that he is contesting against himself. I have also said the same thing. It is rude to say that we are competitors. Fans should refrain from fighting with each other in this regard," Rajinikanth added.

The superstar is currently acting in the film 'Vettaiyan' directed by TJ Gnanavel. The film is expected to hit the theatres this year. Another upcoming film of Rajinikanth is Thalaivar 171 directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.
