Superstar Rajinikanth is a phenomenal actor with a large fan base in India. He has acted in over 150 films and has many blockbuster hits credited to him.

Many actors and actresses dream to share screen space with Thalaivar. But, did you know that Thalapathy Vijay missed an opportunity to act with Superstar in the past?

'Padaiyappa' is one of Superstar's all-time favourite hits and became the highest-grossing film of the time. Actor Abbas played the role of his daughter Preeta's lover in the film.

It was said that the director KS Ravikumar first chose actor Vijay to take up the role. However, Vijay's dates were not available for the shoot and the role went to Abbas.

Will these two stars ever share screen space in the future?
