Rajinikanth, who has been the undisputed superstar of Tamil cinema for over 40 years now, continues to rule hearts of his fans across the world. He isn’t just loved, admired and appreciated, but also worshipped as the Thalaivaa. Such has been the impact of his films, that they haven’t just set the cash registers ringing at Indian Box Office, but also earned huge money in Japan and United Kingdom.

While his fans are busy watching his film Kaala, we tell you what makes Rajinikanth a true real-life hero:


He is a self-made man: Rajinikanth was not born with a proverbial silver spoon in his mouth. On the contrary, he had to face a lot of hardships during his formative years. The son of a Bangalore based Marathi constable; he was soon forced to work as a coolie in order to earn his daily bread. Thereafter, he tried to earn some extra money by taking up the job of a bus conductor.

However, financial stability still remained a distant dream for the man who would one day earn in crores. Luckily, Rajinikanth never lets these challenges break his spirit and continued his search for a better future. As such, it would be safe to say that the veteran star is the very personification of fortitude.

Rajinikanth continues to stay humble: Rajinikanth is someone who has clearly not let stardom or fame take a toll on his humility. While over the years numerous stars—right from Anushka Shetty to Alia Bhatt—have been floored by his warm and grounded ways, the most definite proof of his down to earth nature was seen during the audio launch of ‘Robot’. At the event, he cracked jokes at his expense and thanked Aishwarya Rai for agreeing to work with him. Moreover, on another occasion, Rajinikanth remarked that he was a just a “small king” compared to the Shahenshah Amitabh Bachchan. Interestingly, the two superstars have worked together in Hum, Andhaa Kanoon and Geraftar.

A complete family man: It was in 1980 that Rajinikanth tied the knot with playback singer Latha, beginning a new phase in life. Since then, the ‘Thalaiva’ has maintained a low profile on the personal front. The father of noted filmmakers Aishwarya and Soundarya, the actor rarely talks about his family life at public events. As such, he has always tried to shield his family from constant public scrutiny. Moreover, recent developments suggest that the superstar is extremely close to his grandkids, In fact, some time ago he asked the makers of Lingaa to name the film after his grandson.


Rajinikanth is the textbook definition of selflessness: It was just a few days ago the Chennai was hit by a devastating flood which brought life to a standstill. Pained by the death and destruction caused by this calamity, he asked his fans to refrain from celebrating his birthday and instead help the flood ishness: victims return to normal life. These actions are strong proof of Rajinikanth’s unselfish nature. These were also illustrated in 2002 when he offered financial help to the makers of his ‘Baba’ when the film underperformed at the ticket box office.
