Supreme star

Rajinikanth’s story is irresistible. He is simple Shivaji Rao Gaekwad who, by way of luck and hard work became a superstar, and continues to remain on top notwithstanding the vagaries of time. His starrer Muthu gave him an enviable identity globally, and sky seemed the limit after its unprecedented success in Japan. His latest, Shivaji has further spread his charisma globally. One can love Rajinikanth as millions do, one can hate him, as his detractors do, but the fact also remains no one can ignore him. The book painstakingly seeks to record every nuance of Rajinikanth’s life: the joys and sorrows, the pains and ecstasies, loves and betrayals.
