Maharashtra-born Shivaji Rao Gaekwad was legendary director K Balachander’s find.Today, more than three decades later, we know him as Kollywood king Rajnikanth. In personal life, he is soft-spoken, generous, pious and kind.Born on Dec 20, 1950, Rajnikanth is celebrating his birthday on Saturday. Interestingly, Rajnikanth has no special plans for his B-Day, but would like to watch Paa, enacted by his friend Amitabh Bachchan.
“It’s a fantastic performance and very emotionally moving. I loved Auro!” The South Indian superstar instantly became a fan of Balki’s dynamic direction, P C Sreeram’s fascinating camera angles and Ilaiyaraja’s seeped-in-melody numbers. Rajini is eager to remake Paa in Tamil. But the question is whether Rajini would be keen on playing Auro? Well, it’s too early to say anything about that, he smiles.
