Rajinikanth is a phenomenon which no one can ever explain. This man has fan base all over the world. Rajinikanth has a karizma which will make anyone his fan.
Although he is not a Tamilian he has become like a godly figure there. He used to be a bus conductor and somewhere in between the job he decided that he will leave the job and join the film institute and pursue acting. His first movie ever happened was Apoorva Raagangal directed by K Balachander. Which gave him a good lift. Although his character had a grey shade he was noticed because of the unusual dialogue rendering and a kind of x factor that he has. What happened next is history.
A down to earth man a man who appears before the public without any makeup. A phenomenon, the one and only Rajinikanth.
