Chennai, Dec 11 (): Superstar Rajinikanth celebrates his 62nd birthday on December 12th. He was born in the year 1950. This birthday will be very special, as it falls on the 12th day of the 12th month and year 2012, a magical date.
In his career, Rajini has acted in over 150 films in various film industries and has gained the name as one of the most influential actors in the film industry. His style, mannerisms and stylish dialogue delivery has contributed mass popularity and appeal.
Rajinikanth made his first appearance through Tamil film Apoorva Raagangal in 1975, the movie which was directed by K. Balachander. Initially, he essayed many antagonistic characters in Tamil films. Then, gradually he rose to an established film actor and in few years, Rajini was praised as the superstar of Tamil cinema and he still continues to hold a matinee idol status in India.
It was with S P Muthuraman, Rajini worked in 24 more movies, which gave Rajini the ‘credibility of a positive character’.
He has won six Tamil Nadu State Film Awards—four Best Actor Awards and two Special Awards for Best Actor—and a Filmfare Best Tamil Actor Award. He was bestowed the Padma Bhushan, India’s third highest civilian honour in 2000.
The 3D version of Rajinikanth’s political thriller Sivaji will be released on his 62d birthday. The original version Sivaji was released in 2007 and saw huge openings across screens. It quickly grossed the biggest earnings in history with respect to Tamil cinema.
AVM Studios who made the original Sivaji have taken a lot of effort to release the film in 3D and have spent the last few years in converting the movie from its original format. ‘Sivaji 3D’ version has been trimmed by 30 minutes and has the run time of only 137 minutes.
We wish the ultimate style-star Rajinikanth a very happy birthday and a wonderful year ahead.
