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.

When 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 portrays.

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. © 2004 ; For advertising contact
