Aishwarya Rai is a big fan of Rajinikanth’s onscreen antics, especially of the way he flicks a cigarette in the air. So when she finally saw him do that, she couldn’t have enough.
During the shoot of Endhiran, the actress got a chance to see Rajini’s signature stunt. In one of the scenes with Ash when Rajni had to toss the cigarette, she deliberately kept fluffing so that there could be re-takes. That’s how she managed to see the stunt repeatedly.
From what we hear, no one was aware of Ash’s prank while the shoot was on. But later she revealed to Rajinikanth that she was playing a prank so that she could see what she loves – a cigarette flipped by the one and only Rajinikanth.
