The first-ever comprehensive biography of Rajinikanth, Indain cinema's greatest superstar

When I will come, or how, nobody knows, but I will arrive w hen I ought to' - Muthu (1995)

Rajinikanth is, guile simply, the biggest superstar cinema-crazy India has ever seen His stylized dialogues and screen mannerisms are legion, and his guy next door-cum-superhero image has found a hysterically appreciative following among millions of moviegoers.

Naman Ramachandran's marvellous biography recounts Rajinis career in meticulous detail tracing his incredible cinematic journey from his very first film Apoorva RagangaI in 1975 to memorable forays into Bollywood like Andhaa Ka noon and Hum. from landmark films like Billa, Thalapathi and Annamalai to the mega successes of Baasha, Muthu, Padayappa, Chandramukhi, Sivaji and Enthiran Along the way, the book provides rare insights into the Thalaivar's personal life, from his childhood days to his times of struggle when he was still Sivaji Rao Gaekwad and then his eventual stardom: revealing how a legend was born.

Rapnikanth has not written his memoirs, this book is the closest we are likely to get to the definitive Rain story.



Author Bio: Naman Ramachandran was placed on Planet Earth with the express purpose of writing the definitive biography of Superstar Rajinikanth. Fate intervened, however, and he was separated at birth from his noble purpose by a metaphorical Kumbh Mela of sorts His life journey took him across the world where he became a film critic with Sight & Sound, a film journalist covering South Asia for Variety and the UK and Ireland for Cineuropa, and the author of the book Light, Camera, Masala: Making Movies in Mumbai, besides a few film scripts A chance encounter with a Penguin revealed the Thalaivar tattoo seared deep into his soul, and the epiphany that followed resulted in this book.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Monday 10 December, 2012.
