Looks like producer Ashok Kheny is unfazed by all the warnings issued against him by certain Hindu outfits in casting Rajinikanth as historical warrior Tippu Sultan. “If Tipu is anti-Hindu according to those who are opposing it, then why are lessons based on him included in textbooks. They should understand before making a point,” says Ashok Kheny.
He has also confirmed that he will meet Rajinikanth only after finishing the ground work as he requested few years back. However, it is highly unlikely for Rajinikanth to accept this project since he will be busy with Endhiran 2 from January, 2016.
