"The book on Shahrukh Khan was an inspiration to write this book on Rajini," said Gayathri, who almost spent a year in Bangalooru and other parts of Karnataka, which is related to the actor in his earlier days.
When the author approached Big B with the request of releasing Rajini's biography, it is said that the actor happily accepted the request. Chief Minister Karunanidhi has also been invited to the function, but the CM office is yet to confirm his participation for the same.
It is mentionable that the foreword for the book is written by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. Rajini's close friend Kamal Hassan also gave a foreword note to the book. The English title of the book is, The name is Rajinikanth, while the same has titled in Tamil as Rajini Perai Kettale!
