Affectionately called as Thalaiva, Rajini Kanth, the super star of Indain Cinema has completed his 40 years of in-despicable journey in the movie world. He started off as a bus conductor, later discovered by Balachander who cast him in the movie ‘Aboorva Raagangal’ in 1975. Ever since there was no looking back for this phenomenon called Rajinikanth.
No big star was given the title of superstar till 1978 in Tamil industry. It was Rajinikanth who was given this prefix after he turned a solo hero in the 1978 flick Bhairavi. Till today, he retains the title, having acted in more than 170 films in all south Indian languages, Bollywood, and even a Hollywood flick Blood Stone. The 64-year multi-talented actor has received the Padma Bhushan and Kalaimani honors.
No other contemporary star has the credit of being part of the black and white era, color, 3D and motion capture technology except for Rajinikanth. He also remains the highest paid Asian actor till date. Long live thalaiva.
