The Most Famous Tamil Movie Star Turns 64

Rajinikanth is by far the most famous Tamil movie star in the world. He wasn't born into privilege and doesn't possess traditionally good looks, yet he has captured audiences of all ages and background around the world, in a career that spans decades. On his 64th birthday today, he is also releasing his newest film Lingaa - now that's one heck of a birthday present.
