Chamz, I don't know why keep going on & on about this Rajnikanth special appreance. By any chance, do you hate him? If not, how can you say by making a 1 min SA, it will add unnecessary 1 min to the film's length. I think it's better for you to accept this SA by him because it's Shah Rukh who made this decision & he's the one who know what's best for his own film. Who knows you might even enjoy Rajnikanth's SA when the film releases!
