We all know that Superstar Rajinikanth is simple. Given his stature, it is worth talking about it. It is said that once when Rajinikanth was inside a temple in his usual simple dress, he sat down near a pillar for some time. A lady in her 40’s, who didn’t know about Rajinikanth, crossed the star actor. Looking at him, she mistook the star for a beggar and offered him 10 rupees to him.
A young lady, recalling this incident, said she would have shouted at the person had she been offered money in this manner, but the great man that Rajini is, he kept quiet and took the money offered with a smile. While Rajinikanth was leaving the temple, he headed toward his car and the lady who had offered him money noticed this and ran towards him. The lady apologized to Rajini and said she committed this mistake taking him to be a beggar.
The superstar simply responded by saying that it is indeed God’s way of reminding him every now and then where his place really is and that he isn’t a superstar. Along with Woman’s 10 rupees, Superstar donated 10 lakhs to an orphanage. This story was revealed by a doctor Gayatri in her own book.
Well, only Rajinikanth can speak with such humility.
