  1. wow.. atlast a face to face interview with the Superstar..I just love him for his simplicity and speaking from the heart

  2. super star rajini sir i need to ask one question???
    As a actor why your not acting in endorsement means adds????why is that any particular reason??????
    any way i love you lot…please release next movie this time hollywood heroin sir…….
    i have the titile too < S > ,
    mweheweeeeee,,,,,,

  3. i too liked Rajini performance as villain in Endhiran…. His next movie should be Endhiran II and released in hollywood. Even Endhiran is a hollywood movie if you cut off the six songs. thank you shankar for such a movie in tamil.

  4. poda porambokku.neeyum un pechum…makkal emathi kasu thirudi 2000 kodi sampathichutta…ponnu kalyanathuku anbumani ramadoss kupadara…un pava patta rasigargal nadu rottula….pannada…paradesi…

  5. @ aroopam : Daai paaadu… un vellaiya paaruda paradesi… Rajini pathi pesa unnakku enna da thakuthi eruku… Rajini Sir, evvalvu periya star…daai paadu if you come infront of me then surly will kill you.. asshole 

  6. @ aroopam : Many people mix the individual professional activities to the person’s personal activities which is not fair. He worked hard, he makes as he want… you people should not watch the movie…. that is the credit you should do to save this community & not to give Endhiran team a penny.. instead yelling is not going to work

  7. thalaivaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, ur are just awesome 🙂 🙂 no one can be compared to u, ur just a legend always!

  8. According me rajini is an outspoken man now days, some time he doesn’t know what he is talking about???

    20 years before this same rajini(when he  was mentaly retarded) was hitted by great MGR and rajini itself agreed for that should not happen to him and apologized to MGR.

    yellamae adiadungum valakai –

    chinna vayasula nalla adittu ippa nalla irukkapalae !! himalayas porappalae!!!!

    anyway he is intelluctually strong.

  9. i dnt understand why there s so much hate in this room..guys one cant reach the top level in the film industry unless he has talent n work hard for it, thats exactly what rajini did. he has talent and he knows of a way to attract his audience. he earns alot as well he donates. he donated one million rupees to those affected by the war in srilanka. so appreciate what he does dnt hate. the only reason we tamilians are not known to the world as well as we should is because of the hatered we have amonst our selves. GROW UP.

  10. Shri.Rajinikant already entered politics, he is making his way (political) very clean to walk and follow the same by others.  Very soon Mahaa Avathar Babaji give him order to take care directly to give all goodness even middle class people.
