Rajinikanth – 12.12.12, A Birthday Special, published by The Hindu on the film star’s birthday, was released by the man himself at his Poes Garden residence on Tuesday.

“I was pleasantly surprised to know that The Hindu was bringing out a special on me. This is the first time such a volume is being brought out by your newspaper on an actor, right,” he asked a team from The Hindu who called on him with copies of the special.

Flipping through the pages, a visibly touched Rajinikanth remarked, “I am privileged and honoured.”

100-page volume

The 100-page volume, which celebrates the man and his movies, contains insightful articles, rare photographs and archival material.

They include one by veteran director K. Balachander, who launched Rajinikanth in Tamil cinema, and an interview with SP. Muthuraman, who has directed 25 films starring the actor. Also featured are analyses of Rajinikanth’s rise to superstardom, features on the man behind the film star, reviews of his hit films, and a candid interview with his wife Latha Rajinikanth.

Asked whether he has something to tell his fans on his birthday, Rajinikanth said: “What can I say to them? I can only say thank you for all their love with folded arms.”

Priced at Rs. 150, copies of the Rajini Special may be ordered by calling the nearest office of The Hindu or through the newspaper agent/vendor.
