    Rajini, the Super Star of South cinema always manages to prove himself different. Not only in the acting style, his taste and preferences are also totally different. When a hero gives 2 or 3 hit films, immediately he fancies himself as the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. But Rajinikanth, the one and only real Superstar, would rather settle in The Himalayas and keep himself far away from the 'polluted' metro. But he has some unfulfilled wishes too. While he was still young in the film industry, Rajini enjoyed his lonely life and made midnight trips on his Bullet Motorcycle, as is remembered by actress Radhika. Many times he made trips to Bangalore or to the North in a train as an anonymous person wearing ordinary clothes. Two years ago, he paid a visit to the holy Baba Caves in the Himalayas, and preferred to travel by train.

    Although he likes to travel by train, his superstar image does not allow him to do so publicly.To fulfill his wishes, he purchased 3 A/C coaches from The Indian Railways and made every effort to run the same inside his Kelambakkam farmhouse! Sources say that Rajini purchased these coaches from Trichy Railway Division at a public auction sale. One of the coaches has already arrived in a container to his farmhouse. One can see the coach just before the main entrance. Since there is no possibility of seeing a train in and around the East Coast area, it is completely a different spectacle to the people of that village. The nearest Railway Station is Chengalpattu, which is very far from the coastal area.

    This farmhouse is located at East Coast Road, 40 kms from Chennai. It is spread over more than 5 acres. According to the sources, Rajini purchased this land in the early nineties at a cheaper rate. Now the cost of the land will fetch around Rs.10 crores. The work of paving platforms is going on inside the farmhouse, and a 'mini' railway station is also being built. The villagers residing nearby are passing on 'information' to every visitor, with the surprise story about the 'farmhouse train'.
