Yesterday it was festival time in Tamil Nadu, particularly Chennai! Shows to wish thalaivar in almost all FM radio channels; TV channels telecasting thalaivar’s hits; Posters and banners at all major points; Calendar sheet showing that it was indeed thalaivar’s birthday 🙂
I have always loved Rajnikanth, especially for his style, charisma and personality. His movies off late, are creating huge expectations among the masses and rarely disappoint the producers. I look up to him as a very natural example of the ‘rags to riches’ story, a role that he plays in almost all his movies :). People of Tamil Nadu treat his birthday as an occasion to celebrate, a status generally accorded to the politicians. But Rajnikanth is far above the politicians, as his fans are spread across different political clouts. His simplicity and philanthropy, are highly paradoxical to his social status.
I wish our ‘thalaivar’ many more happy years and keep giving us the ‘rocking entertainment’, year after year!
