Rajinikanth: 61 and Raring to Go!
The ultimate star of our generation, Rajinikanth turns 61 today, and the star is raring to go! As much excited as ever about his new projects, Rajni who has had an eventful year enthusiastically looks forward to life past sixty!
Born Shivaji Rao Gaikwad on the 12th of December 1950, the actor had done on to be one of the most adored stars that india has ever produced. His fan reach in the state of Tamil Nadu remains unparalleled, and even after several decades of his entry into films, his star status remains unquestioned.
There have been stars galore in the Tamil film industry, even before and after Rajinikanth, but none of them have managed to garner the popularity that Thalaivar has. He is also one of the most down-to-earth stars in the country, and his simplicity and impeccable ways have been much appreciated as well.
The health scare in 2011, that saw the actor travelling abroad to get state-of-the-art treatment, made news headlines, and had an entire population praying for his good health. He is back however with a bang, and is all set to carry on with his enviable career that is often considers to be one with few parallels. Happy Birthday Rajinikanth!
