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.
