A normal person who entered the cinema industry with not big dreams has made to the highest possible position in the hearts of fans. As we had already mentioned in an article before this that his real name is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad. And he has done his schooling and initial drama entry phase was all in Bangalore. We could say that Superstar Rajinikanth is one of kind actor who can fit into different kind of roles.
Most the Rajinikanth fans will know that his first movie Apoorva Raagangal, in which he played very small but a prominent role. He continued to do character roles in few other movies. And done a very good job as a character artist. A special mention to some movies like Bhuvana oru kelvi Kuri, Aval oru thodar kathai etc.,
He continued to the next phase by taking up roles of an antagonist, which generally people aspiring to be hero in cinema wouldn’t do. But Superstar excelled in performance in Villian roles. In one these villain roles in Moondru mudichu his style of flipping the cigarette became very popular.
He continued to do a lot of movies but had taken up action phase. There were a lot of movies in row which was full on action subject like Billa, Ranga, Kalli, Murattu Kaalai and tons of other movie where he shined as an action star.
Thillu mullu was Rajinikanth’s first movie to portray him as a star who can handle comedy subject. This was the first movie in comedy subject for Rajini, though he was hesitant in taking up this role he did so on the advice of his mentor Balachander. And the movie was a super duper hit then. Unlike Thillu Mullu, there are few other movies like Mullum Mallarum, 6 le irundhu 60 varai, Sri Raghavendra where we can see an entirely different Superstar.
Then came the Mass hero tag with Rajinikanth’s movies. He had established himself as a popular actor equivalent to another other top stars in any language. There was a time when Rajinikanth was the only star who was paid equivalent to Jackie chan. He became the top star in South India cinema living everyone else far behind him. His movies like Pandian, Annamalai, Basha, Padaiyappa are just some examples where his style has spoken for the movie.
From then on his journey has never has a look back. He is only star in Tamil cinema who is enjoyed equally by a 6 year old till 70 year old person. His recent release 2 POINT 0 has shattered all the benchmarks which was created by him and has reached unimaginable heights. The villains him can still be seen in Chitti character where he says ‘Vaseegaran, Meaaaaa’… he is just a fantasy for a lot of his fans till date.
Kollywood.net wishes the one and only Superstar Rajinikanth a very happy birthday!!!
