CHENNAI: Rajnikant-starrer "Chandramukhi" is running to full houses. The credit entirely goes to Rajnikant and director P. Vasu, says the proud producer Prabhu. "Every move in the film was planned by P. Vasu with the help of Rajnikant," he said.

The film's most popular song `Devuda Devuda' has a catch word - `Repeatu' - which figures four times in the song, featuring director Vasu Prabhu's brother Ramkumar and Rajnikant uttering the word in different times.

"Rajnikant wanted one particular person to do it for the fourth time. In fact, when he named the person we wanted him to do it all the four times. But Rajnikant said using him once would make people into wondering who he is." As expected, many were wondering who the person is.

He is Raja Badhar. What is special about him? Raja Badhar and Rajnikant were the driver and conductor of the same bus in Bangalore. In fact, when Rajnikant wanted to come to Chennai to try his hand in movies, it was Raja Badhar who had given some money to him. "So whenever possible, Rajnikant gets a role for Raja Badhar and also takes care of the latter's family," said Prabu.
