The iconic actor, Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, commonly known as Rajinikanth was born in a Marathi family on December 12, 1950, in Bangalore. The little boy was named after the king of the Maratha Empire, Chhatrapati Shivaji, by his parents. While his father was a police constable, his mother was a housewife. Before making it big in cinema, Rajinikanth had done numerous odd jobs for a living, one of them was that of a bus conductor. However, with his exceptional acting talent and style, he had made a name for himself in the film industry, and after all these years, Rajinikanth has completed 47 glorious years in Indian cinema.
For the unversed, it was the iconic director, K Balachander, who had christened Shivaji as Rajinikanth for his debut film, Apoorva Raagangal. On this special occasion, his daughter, Aishwarya Rajinikanth shared some pictures as she called it '47 years of Rajinism'. Scroll down to take a look at it.
On August 15, 2022, Aishwarya Rajinikanth took to her Instagram handle and shared two pictures to wish her dearest daddy on completing 47 years in the Indian film industry. The doting daughter clicked a picture of her father with a beautiful backdrop that reads, "47 years of Rajinism". Along with the pictures, Aishwarya also penned a lovely note in the caption in which she shared how proud she is of her daddy, who completed 47 years of his illustrious career in the Indian film industry on the day, when the entire nation was celebrating the 75th Independence day.
