South Indian actor Meena has revealed an interesting titbit from the sets of Annaatthe, starring superstar Rajinikanth in the lead role. In a recent interview, Meena said, “One day Rajinikanth sir came near me and said, ‘Meena, I’m disappointed with you.’”
She added, “I was shocked and many others were also watching us. He then said that we all have changed, but you look the same as how I saw you in Veera.”
Veera is a 1993 Tamil film which was a remake of the Telugu film Allari Mogudu that had released a year earlier. It starred Rajinikanth, Meena, Roja, Janagaraj, Senthil, Vadivukkarasi, J. Livingston, Mahesh Anand, Vinu Chakravarthy, Ajay Rathnam, Vivek and Charuhasan.
