Rajini – Awards and accolades
Dec 12

Stardom was never a matter of admiration; in fact it was a matter of concern for him. Rajini – as opposed to his star status – prefers to be away from the flashing media lights and the red carpet. He would rather pay a visit to the Himalayas in search of inner peace rather than heading a film event. That is Rajini in a nutshell for you, who celebrates his 57th birthday today.

On his birthday, we are determined to leave you awestruck enlightening you on Rajini’s award winning movies.
The story begins….

Rajini – the superstar of Tamil cinema – did not think that he would cut a wide swath in the history of Tamil cinema. His passion for movies made him quit his job as a bus conductor and in pursuit of his dreams, he took acting classes in the film institute later to be spotted by Balachandar.

Balachandar rechristened the then Sivaji Rao Gaekwad to Rajinikanth – the name that pioneered all the ‘Kanths’ later arrived in Tamil cinema. No one ever thought the youngster would become an inevitable factor in Tamil cinema in his salad days. Rajini debuted as a villain with Apoorva Raagangal and stayed on for a couple of years before he tested waters as a mainstream hero which went over with a bang – as we all well know. Lady luck smiled at the superstar ever since and there has been no time to look back.
He is on top…

Here he is, reigning supreme in Tamil cinema with his commendable presence. With over 160 movies to his credit in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, and Bengali, Rajini is much known in the industry circles as a better human being – which he never fails to prove time and again.

Rumored to be highest paid actor in India and the second highest paid actor in Asia only next to Jackie Chan, Rajini was once chosen as one of the most influential persons in South Asia by Asiaweek magazine. To acknowledge his contributions to the industry, the central government conferred the Padma Bhushan on him in the year 2000.
Awards and recognitions…

While expressing warm wishes to the superstar on his birthday, here we present the complete list of Rajinikanth's movies. Once again, Happy Birthday to Rajini from the behindwoods team.
