Smashing records with a huge opening collection of Rs 250 crore in India alone (as per a statement from the production house), Rajinikanth-starrer Kabali has become the biggest opener ever.
A fifteen minute role in Apoorva Raagangal (1975) started a scintillating career which was to become synonymous with charisma, magic and miracles. The tricks learnt at Karnataka State Transport Corporation made Shivaji Rao Gaikwad aka Rajinikanth the man every fan was waiting for.
With the style, the ruggedness, the majestic walk, the magisterial persona, things had to fall in place. By now, we have heard and read so much about Rajinikanth that we almost believe that it was bound to happen. He was born to be the superstar.
