Superstar Rajinikanth — you can’t take Thalaiva’s name without that ‘superstar’ prefix.

He worked as a bus conductor in 1973, while pursuing acting alongside.

His fan following is not just limited to India — the premieres of his films are celebrated worldwide in crazy ways. But do you know what started the whole trend of Rajinikanth jokes, which portray him as the man who’s capable of doing anything and everything?
