A little bit of trivia; do you know what Rajinikanth's real name
is? It's Shivajirao Gaikwad. The star of Endhiran – The
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
The Robot, he did not miss the opportunity to meet Shiv
Sena Chief Bal 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 crème of
Bollywood, Rajinikanth made sure that he spent quality time with
the Shiv Sena chief. To Rajini, Thackeray is nothing less than a
God and holds in high esteem.
During his meet with Bal Thackeray, Rajinikanth 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.
