SHIVAJI Rao Gaikwad alias Rajnikanth, an Indian film actor, Tamil superstar, producer, director, media personality, cultural icon has started his digital journey as he joined Twitter on Monday. The 63-year-old Rajnikanth’s official handle is ‘@SuperStarRajini’.
More than 8,000 followers joined him within minutes of him joining the micro-blogging site.
Born and raised in the Indian city of Bangalore, Rajinikanth struggled with an impoverished lifestyle during his childhood. He began acting in plays while working in the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) as a bus conductor. He came to Madras (Chennai) in 1973 and got admitted into the Madras Film Institute to pursue a diploma in acting.
‘Rajnikanth jokes’ are one of the most read and forwarded SMS jokes in India and this has only helped his popularity grow all over the country. These jokes (Rajnikanth) makes impossible, possible. Much like most of his larger-than-life films.
