“A very happy birthday to Rajinikanth Ji. May he keep inspiring people with his creativity and phenomenal acting. May Almighty bless him with a long and healthy life,” the Prime Minister wrote on the microblogging site.

Also referred to as 'Thalaiva' by his fans and followers, Rajinikanth has completed more than 45 years as an actor.

Born Shivaji Rao Gaekwad on December 12, 1950, he was given the name 'Rajinikanth' by ace Tamil filmmaker K Balachander in whose 1975 flick 'Apporva Raagangal' he debuted in a supportive role, according to news agency PTI. Eight years later, in 1983, Rajinikanth made his debut in Bollywood with ‘Andha Kanoon’ along with Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini.
