Rajinikanth, the superstar who has ruled Tamil cinema for decades has turned 68 today. On the occasion, fans and celebs have flooded social media with their wishes, as they expressed for the love and admiration for Thalaivar. Joining the bandwagon is 'Baahubali' star Rana Daggubati, although he has given his wishes a unique twist.
Taking to Instagram, the actor shared pictures of the Superstar, in a minion avatar! On the occasion of his birthday, Rana paid tribute to three of his iconic films- 'Baba', 'Padaiyappa', and 'Enthiran'. While the minion featuring 'Baba' can be seen in a denim outfit and sporting a beard, the 'Padaiyappa' one can be seen in a white dhoti and shirt as it is sitting on a swing. The 'Enthiran' one is the craziest of all though, as it shows a minion in a grey coat with crazy hair on its head. Sharing these cute and incredible posters, Rana captioned it as, "THE NAME IS RAJINIKANTH!! #hbdsuperstarrajinikanth". Take a look at the various minion avatars down below:
Meanwhile, on the occasion of his grand birthday, the makers of 'Petta' also unveiled a special teaser for Thalaivar fans. The teaser did not reveal much about the film's plot but at the same time, it had plenty of things to celebrate for fans of the Superstar. Other than the teaser, the veteran actor's '2.0' co-star Akshay Kumar also had a heartfelt message for him as he called him 'the epitome of simplicity'.
It is definitely looking like the year of Rajinikanth as his latest release '2.0' has become a runaway success. Shankar's magnum opus which was mounted on a whopping Rs 500 crore budget has already recovered its costs and is marching past Rs 600 crore in terms of worldwide box office collections. Other than this, the anticipation for his next release 'Petta' is also sky high. Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the film is all set to come out on Pongal next year.
