The Rise of Rajinikanth

Rajinikanth started to do drama and theater and began his career in acting. Soon he discovered Madras Film Institute and started getting acting lessons without his family’s consent. His family didn’t or couldn’t have helped him but his friends and co-workers helped him morally and financially.


Thalaiva was later got recognized by a famous Tamil director K Balachander who advised him to learn Tamil. Later he made his debut with a Tamil film “Apoorva Raagangal (1975) which was very well recognized and received three National Awards. Rajinikanth now got a break and his career was boosted after this without any delay.

Rajinikanth is well-known for intro songs in his movies that are more of an explanation of his real-life else than being an actor. He might just do the lip-sync but the lyrics narrate his lifestyle. A famous song from one of his films “Oruvan Oruvan Mudhaalali” has words that mean “If you have ‘some money in your hands, you own it but if you have ‘lots’ of money, it owns you.” The lyrics very well define the cons of greed.
