One of the greatest superstars ever of India, Rajnikanth is celebrating his 70th b’day today. He has had a wild journey within the industry since he started out and has one of the biggest fan bases of any celebrity. He eventually turned into the highest-paid actor in the industry due to his unique and larger than life characters.
On his special day, we bring you the facts that make Rajnikanth the ultimate Thalaiva from the entertainment industry:
- Rajnikanth is predominantly known for all his work in south cinema. However, he was actually brought up speaking Marathi as well as Kannada. His actual name is Shivaji Rao Gaikwad.
- The story of the actor being a bus conductor is very popular before he got into acting, making him a genuine outsider from the industry. People aren’t aware that he also used to work as a carpenter and a coolie before his big break.
- Before a wide recognition, Rajnikanth played antagonistic roled during the first two years of his career. In fact, some of his very first roles were of a womaniser, rapist and an abusive husband. The villain tag soon got removed when people saw him in the film ‘Bhuvana Oru Kelvi Kuri’.
- Rajnikant is the only celebrity to star in as much as 11 Tamil remakes of the film of legendary icon Amitabh Bachchan including Laawaris, Don, Deewar and so on.
- No matter how popular he gets, Rajnikanth has a heart of gold. He is a down to earth person in real life, which is extremely opposite to the grand roles he plays on screens. As per a report, the actor has been known for donating half his income to charities!
Here are some sincere wishes from his fans on his birthday!
