Rajinikanth is a Bloody Liar

Whew, what a journey.

From a lowly bus conductor in the Bangalore Transport Service to Superstar of Tamil cinema for over two decades!

And now acknowledged as a “Blockbuster” Indian living legend.

No miracle this, even if Rajinikanth insists it is (see below video)!

Just dogged perseverance and enormous will power!

Thalaivar, Vazhga (Oh leader, may victory always be yours).

    Why Mr.Rajinikanth is calling himself that he is a miracle?

    Rajinikanth is a selfish guy, he did nothing to the people of Tamil Nadu or Karnataka. Yes he is an actor, so he is not required to do anything to people. However, this question arises, because he & his media made a noble selfless leader image for him …My friend work as a editor in chennai, he tells lots of stories about this guy. One thing is that during the shooting of Ejamaan, they got to cancel shoot after lunch shooting, since super got busy with meenu saapdu. So he is not just straight, all his friends are rich like Mohan babu, Ambareesh etc..not his rasigar mandra thalaivars. He should simply retire and keep counting kala paise. not building GOD Man image which he does not deserve. He is a cheat.

    One of the unfortunate aspects of administering a blog is that I’m frequently forced to read through utter drivel like your comment!

    Why don’t you shove your hands into a meat-grinder and spare me the agony in future!

    Dear SI, I couldn’t understand your intentions in this post?

    Was the post written in a sarcastic or complimentary tone?

    The title of the post is misleading. Kindly convey your real thoughts.

    Were you praising Rajini or being sarcastic?

    1. You write: The title of the post is misleading. Kindly convey your real thoughts.

    Not misleading at all.

    In the video, Rajini attributes his success to a miracle.

    What I’m saying is that the ‘miracle’ thing is bullshit.

    The real reason for Rajinikanth’s success is his perseverance and determination to succeed.

    I was tacitly praising him because Rajini’s rendezvous/tryst with destiny was mapped out by him with great will.

    2. But whether Rajini’s public show of humility is real, strategic or feigned, I have no idea. Only Rajini knows!

    He is a humble guy, thats sure, it requires guts to talk like that in front of an audience,

    “But whether Rajini’s public show of humility is real, strategic or feigned, I have no idea. Only Rajini knows!” –

    I do not know Rajini in person. But my friend has interacted with Rajini on multiple occasions. All he had to say was that Rajini was every bit the pious and humble man he claims/he is projected to be. My dad met him during a visit to an ashram and saw him seated on the floor (Dad said he almost couldn’t resemble Rajini due to lack of makeup and a huge beard) – Even here, he never showed off or even uttered a word.

    However, having said this, he was no angel in the past.. His shenanigans with the actresses in the 80s have been well-documented (In fact, it is not-so-subtly hinted in the film, DIRTY PICTURE, in the character played by Naseeruddin Shah – A reference to Rajini’s oogling and mischief adventures with the yester-year bombshell, Silk Smitha) and it is said that his current demeanour is actually a product of his not-so-glorious past!!!

    Hopefully, he is really the man we think him to be.

      He might have ogled at fellow actresses such as Silk Smitha, he might have proposed Sridevi, he might have had frictions with MGR for the sake of Actress Latha, he may have gone mentally unstable – all during his young years. If he was no angel by this definition, Nehru should not even be respected because of his affairs, and Gandhi should not even be remembered for sleeping naked with younger girls and writing “love letters” to Hermann. Of course, I’m not comparing him with those personalities.

      But the point is – his was one hell of a ride in life – from a bus conductor to the superstar of Tamil cinema (sometimes beyond Tamil cinema) with a mad mass following that goes berserk on his mere appearance on the screen – a pointless reason for anyone who is new to his fandom. (SI should visit India one of these days if possible and watch a movie on first day) We can’t deny the fact that this serves as an inspiration for many youths, and that dedication and determination go a long way.

      All glorious present has a not-so-glorious past behind. At least he did not mow down people sleeping on the sides of road with his car, or did not love Pakistan, or did not possess arms in custody and go to jail.

    No doubt, Rajini reached the top of Tamil Cinema due to hard work; but he was the second most talented of his generation, next only to Kamal.

    His speech of calling his life as a “miracle” is to satisfy right wing Media and Indian Politics, which badly needs support of Indian Mass (Rajini can inspire such masses) to continue looting them in name of miraculous Lives. Sorry for not able my thoughts properly, but I hope you will understand my point.

    1. You write: I hope you will understand my point.

    Only a ‘miracle’ will help people understand what you’re trying to say.

    Alas, miracles are in short supply. πŸ˜‰

    Whatever may have been the hard work or talent of the old Rajini, the new Rajini is nothing but a milch cow for film producers who use PR and social media to ‘build’ him up.

    2. BTW, Not all believers (in Hindutva, Ram, Ayodhya or whatever Hindu rubbish the BJP is peddling) are right wing in their political ideology. That is the fundamental challenge before the BJP.

    Yeah, Rajnikanth is a hard worker. In fact he is both a miracle and a hard worker. Rajnikanth persevered hard with his trashy antics, vulgar mannerisms,worse than abominable choice of scripts, at atrocious, outrageous, unforgivable unwillingness to learn, at dispensing absolute disrespect for the connoisseurs and in fact, having no idea of what the good taste is and who a connoissuer is, at being immensely trashier, crassier, grossier, louder, cruder, nastier and heck, ‘luckier’ than others…..

    He is indeed a hard worker!!!!…. A consummate perpetrator of all the bad traditions of indian cinema, an ultimate symbol of what’s all wrong with indian movies and indian minds (or shall I say south indian minds??), a messenger for the suppressed, sex-starved, success-starved, brains-starved masses and a messiah for whoever wants to make shitloads of money out of pure shit and who showed an Himalayan middle finger to the values of his own profession while trudging Himalayas……

    Oh boy, he’s ‘miraculously’ delivered despite such heavy workload!!!

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. 100% True, Every Word (well, almost every), Above.

    Rajini is no Brando nor has he helped to elevate Tamil cinema from the cesspool it’s mired in for over seven decades.

    Despite the soul-crushing disadvantages of wrong skin-color, lack of education and absence of godfathers Rajinikanth emerged first in the Kollywood rat-race trash race for wealth, fame and superstardom.

    And that’s no mean feat, even if Rajini’s victory happened in the only Indian race that counts, the trash race that panders to the basest and crassest!

    2. Could a post-success Rajini have helped to deliver better cinema?

    Sadly, he chose not to!

  7. madanya   December 20, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    Rajnikanth probably just wanted to make a funny comment so that people would laugh and he took that opportunity to do so. He was asked to give 3 pieces of advice to the youth of India, but he didn’t. Of course, there were 24 other stalwarts invited for being honored.

    Shahrukh Khan and Vikram Seth also brought some humor with their speeches.

    However, it was very unusual for giving a private company such as NDTV to hold an awards ceremony at the Presidential auditorium.

    The Indian media can never speak truth to power because they’re too cozy with the powers that be! πŸ™
