Video: Rajinikanth Is Not a Thalaiva Only in India, but in Japan Too!

Rajinikanth inspired his fan club in Japan to learn about Indian culture and languages

Superstar Rajinikanth, who is fondly known as Thalaiva, is arguably the most well-known actor in India. Calling him popular is definitely an understatement.

Rajinikanth’s movies are famous for breaking box-office records, and his fans flood cinema theatres and care not for the availability of seats, as long as they get to watch the first day first show of the movie. They have been going the extra mile on his birthday and invent unique styles to celebrate it.

People bathe Rajinikanth’s massive statues in milk and put garlands over them, making Rajinikanth no less than God for his followers. And despite having such fan-following, the man is as down to earth as he can be.

But wait, the Thalaiva is not a superstar only in India. He has a fanbase in Japan too, where people love his action-packed movies and smooth dance moves.

Here is a video about his stardom and fan-base in Japan.
