is celebrating his 69th birthday and as opposed to grand celebrations, the actor is having a quiet birthday with his close family. His ardent fans are having a field day on social media by sharing rare photos and videos of Thalaivar in the pretext of celebrating Thalaivar.
Several Kollywood and Tollywood celebrities including Kamal Haasan
, Kajal Aggarwal
, and Karthik Subbaraj took to Twitter to wish Superstar Rajinikanth. Mahesh Babu
was one of the first few Telugu actors to wish Thalaivar. His message reads, "Happy Birthday to our Thalaiva @rajinikanth sir. Wishing you a phenomenal year with great health and joy. Much love and respect (sic)"
However, what took everyone by surprise was former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar's wish for Rajinikanth. Firstly, he wished in Tamil and also managed to include Superstar's upcoming film Darbar in his tweet.
Sachin Tendulkar shared a photo of himself with Rajinikanth and wrote, "A happy birthday @rajinikanth sir. Your onscreen style and offscreen humility make you the ‘Thalaiva’ in every ‘Darbar’. (sic)"
