I am not a big fan of Rajinikanth and neither am I a Rajini hater. It's been like that for me since my school / college days and continues till today.
I've always heard about Rajini being a down-to-earth, humble person who is simple in his public life. I've heard this from my friends who have seen him up close on several occasions. I've also seen this on TV, You Tube etc.
The clip I posted yesterday, stands out for that one reason. Just look at the man's eyes, his body language, his attitude and above all, when the reporter asks him the punch line dialog, just see how easily he is able to do that without any inhibitions.
I am not sure any other actor at his level would do that. In fact most of the actors whom we see today have artificial accents and too much attitude when it comes to public life.
So, here you go, Mr.Sivaji Rao Gaekwad aka Rajinikanth, you are high up there just for these personality traits of yours !
SIMPLICITY & HUMBLENESS
