Superstar Rajinikanth is one of the most followed actors in the Indian Cinema. There is no denying in saying that he is one of the most influential celebrities in our country. He has fans across all the states. All this stardom didn't come overnight and there was a lot of struggle behind it. Rajini used to work as a bus-conductor during his younger days and due to his interest in acting, he moved into films. From doing small roles, he now became a Superstar. Everyone knows this story. What many people don't know is that Rajini had a love story in his past. The actor also had a heartbreak during his younger days. This tragic love story got revealed by Rajini's good friend and popular actor Devan.
Rajini and Devan acted together in many films. Devan has revealed this unknown love story of Rajini in a recent interview. He said that while they were shooting in Chennai one day, he went to Rajini's room to have a chat. Rajini was quite drunk at that time and asked Devan to sit beside him. Then, he told his love story.
This happened during the days where he used to work as a conductor in Bangalore. At that time, Rajini used to like a woman named Dr. Nirmala. Both of them met on the bus itself. Nirmala used to regularly travel on the Bus that Rajini used to work in. Eventually, both have become good friends. One day, Rajini invited Nirmala to one of his stage plays. Nirmala visited the show and got impressed with Rajini's acting. She then filed an application form for the film institute in Chennai on Rajini's behalf, without his knowledge. When he secured the seat, Nirmala gave him money and sent him to Madras. When Rajini came back to Bangalore, he went to visit Nirmala. Much to his shock, he got informed that Nirmala and her family have shifted to an unknown place. This has devastated Rajinikanth. It seems that the actor took a long time to recover from the pain.
No one knows this story until Devan revealed it recently. People are now opining that Rajini's real-life story would become a beautiful reel-life story if someone decides to film it.
