Another fan of Tamil superstar, Raghu, said, “He is pretty humble from his heart. I wish his film go blockbuster and break all the records.”

Born as Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, Rajnikanth, began acting in plays while working in the Bangalore Transport Service as a bus conductor.

In 1973, he joined the Madras Film Institute to pursue a diploma in acting. Following his debut in K. Balachander’s National Film Award-winning Apoorva Raagangal (1975), his acting career commenced with a brief phase of portraying antagonistic characters in Tamil films.

After establishing himself as a lead actor in a number of commercially successful films, he began to be referred to as a ‘superstar’ and has since continued to hold a matinee idol status in the popular culture of South. His mannerisms and stylised delivery of dialogue in films contribute to his mass popularity and appeal.
