Rajini bags Raj Kapoor Award
April 24, 2006

His ‘Superstar’ status may be his biggest award. Yet, recognition for significant contribution is definitely an incentive to continue to perform better. The Maharashtra Government will confer the Raj Kapoor award for this year on Rajnikanth. The award carries prize money of Rs. 1 lakh, a citation, and a memento. Rajnikanth will receive the award at the glittering State Awards ceremony on April 30th at Thane.

Incidentally, Rajnikath aka Sivaji Rao hails originally from Maharashtra. He migrated to Karnataka and then joined Tamil films. Because of his immense star appeal and charisma on screen, he won the hearts of all.

He developed his own personal style and people went berserk watching his unique mannerisms in every film. He went on to deliver a string of hits. His films became so popular that they were lapped up by producers for record-breaking amounts, soon after the film’s pooja was completed.

The Maharshtra Government award is one more feather to Rajni’s cap. This is not the first time Rajinkanth is receiving an award. He is already a recipient of the Padmabhushan award as well as several state awards, and the Kalaimamani award. The fact that another state has chosen to felicitate Rajnikanth from the southern film industry is indeed a cause of celebration for the lovers of Tamil cinema.
