Rajinikanth, undoubtedly is the original superstar of Tamil cinema. What is more amazing is that this man who came to dominate Tamil cinema is not even a Tamilian but a Marathi born, raised in Bangalore.
Rajinikanth had great respect for mothers and women and mostly played the underdog – the Labour, an Auto Driver, in most of his films which made him closer to the masses.
Apart from his magnetic screen presence, Rajini also knew how to get his people organized. He made the effective use of his fan clubs to do social service and act as his publicists. His constant portrayal as an ordinary worker who could take on the rich and powerful made him an idol to millions of poor people in Tamil Nadu and NRI Tamils. He became the messiah of masses.
He certainly is one of a kind and one doubts whether we will actually see another person like him with his sway over the Tamil people all over the world.
If the reports are to be believed, the management at Madame Tussauds are planning from a long time to have Rajinikanth‘s wax statue and now it can happen. This is going to be an amazing news for all the Rajini fans across the globe if it materializes.
