A little bit of trivia, do you know what Rajinikanth‘s real name is? It’s Shivajirao Gaikwad. The star of Endhiran (Robot) may have made it big in Tamil cinema but at heart he will always be a sincere Maharashtrian.
No wonder then that when he was in town promoting his film Robot, he did not lose out on an opportunity to meet Shiv Sena Chief Balasahab Thackeray and seek his blessings. Even though he was in Mumbai for only two days and was in the midst of a special screening of his film organised for the cream de la crÃ¨me of Bollywood, Rajini made sure he spent quality time with the chief. To Rajini, Thackeray is nothing less than a God and holds in high esteem.
During his meet with Thackeray, Rajini also expressed his deep desire to work in Marathi cinema. Well, considering his strike rate with the Tamil industry, Marathi cinema will surely get the much needed boost with Rajini’s support.
