Dadasaheb Phalke Award Tamil superstar Rajinikanth will receive the film's highest honor.
South India superstar Rajinikanth will be conferred with Dada Saheb Phalke Award 2019. Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar announced this on Thursday. On a question of linking it with Tamil Nadu elections, he said that Rajinikanth is being given this honour for his contribution to the film industry. It has nothing to do with the election. Tamil Nadu has to wait for the Assembly elections on 6 April. Rajinikanth will be given the 51st Dadasaheb Phalke Award on 3 May.
Prime Minister congratulates Thalaiva
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Rajinikanth by sharing the post on social media. He wrote, "Popular, tremendous work in many generations that few people can do, diverse roles and a loving personality ... Such is Rajinikanth Ji. It is a great pleasure that Thalaiva was honoured with Dadasaheb Phalke Award Hey, congratulations to them. "
Rajinikanth left politics in 26 days
Rajinikanth's dream of joining politics remained unfulfilled. Rajni, 70, has decided not to enter electoral politics due to ill health. On 3 December, Rajinikanth had said that he would form a new party and will also contest the 2021 assembly elections. A new party will be announced on 31 December, but this could not be done and he left politics within 26 days.
The mother died at the age of four
Born on 12 December 1950 in a Marathi family in Bengaluru, Rajni's real name is Shivaji Rao Gaikwad. Shivaji was the youngest of the four children of Jijabai and Ramoji Rao. She did her schooling in Bangalore. Rajinikanth was four years old when his mother passed away. The gardener's condition of the house was not very good. Hence Rajinikanth worked from coolie to bus conductor. Due to his unique style of cutting tickets on the bus, he became popular and friends advised him to act in films.
