The evergreen unique actor and the Superstar
of Tamil industry, Rajinikanth was introduced by the
renowned director, K.Balachandar in the movie Aboorva
raagangal as a co-artist. He continued acting
in Tamil films as a villain and was given a chance
to act in a protagonist role in Bhairavi.
His style of acting, free flowing comedy and stunts
helped him in achieving continuous hits over a long
period of time. It was Thalapathy and Batsha
that brought him to the pinnacle of glory. Film Baba
which was written and produced by him did not give
him fame and was taken up much by its downfall. Then
after a long gap Rajinikanth proved himself as the
sole leader in Tamil industry through his film Chandramukhi.
He was conferred Padhma Bushan.
