Vijayakumar’s performance also contributed to the film’s success. Rajini himself is in awe of Vijayakumar’s performance in Floss Bag. Vijayakumar’s character in Nattami attracted Rajini very much.
Because of that, Rajinikanth played the role of Nattami Vijayakumar in the Telugu remake of Nattami, ‘Betharayudu’. How many people know this? But Vijayakumar’s mannerism and Rajini’s mannerism are not the same. So in Telugu he will have acted as Natama in Rajini’s style.
The 1995 Telugu remake of Nattami also received some criticism for Rajinikanth. Because at that time, Rajini, who was giving hit films like Badsha and Annamalai, suddenly acted in such a role, which caused a stir among the people of Tamil Nadu.
