There was a lot of speculation among Rajini’s
fans and well as the film industry. There were rumours
also in the film circle about who would direct his next
movie.Whether it would be K.S.Ravikumar or P.Vasu. What
gave rise to these speculative stories was that Rajini
had been silent about his next plan even after the release
of Chandramukhi.,which was directed by P.Vasu. The film
Chandramukhi was a phenomenal success. Now everything
had come to light that Rajinikanth had signed up his
next movie under the AVM banner.
he appears in his opening scene, cinema-hall crowds
throw money at the screen in a delirium. His fan clubs
are numerous. His every gesture is part of youth body
language. Distribution rights are sold out in millions
of rupees, even as he announces plans for his new film.
His every release is celebrated with pomp and show.
The title 'Mega Star' seems inadequate. From a bus conductor
in Bangalore to super stardom in Tamil Nadu, Rajini's
story is as fascinating as that of the hero roles he
His real name is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad. In 1975 he made
his debut in a character role for K. Balachander's Apoorva
Raagangal. But it was his villainous portrayal, of Parattai,
in Bharathiraja's Padhinaaru Vayadhinile that registered
with the masses. Rajinikanth's stylized hero can be
best understood in the swift gestures, the rapid-fire
dialogue delivery and the dramatic movements, that he
has made is his trademark.
Among his notable films are Moondru Mudichu, Mullum
Malarum, Priya, Murattu Kaalai, Thalapathi, Mannan,
Annaamalai, Baasha, Muthu, and Padayappa.
