Biographie

Rajinikanth, né Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, est issu d’une famille marathe de Bangalore, Inde. Il est le quatrième enfant de Rambhai, agent de police, et Ramoji Rao Gaekwad qui meurt alors qu'il n'a que cinq ans.

Rajinikanth étudie à l’école primaire Acharya Paathshala à Basavanagudi (Bangalore) puis au Sangh Balak Vivekananda, une unité de la mission Ramakrishna. Sa langue maternelle est le marâthî même s’il n’a jamais tourné de film dans cette langue.

Rajinikanth a beaucoup souffert pendant son jeune âge en raison de la pauvreté de sa famille. Par la suite, il exerce toutes sortes de petits "boulots" pour vivre. Il travaille notamment comme cascadeur au temple de Rama Hanuman près de chez lui.

Avant de rentrer dans l’industrie du cinéma, il est conducteur de bus pour le service des transports de Bangalore. En remarquant son charisme et son style, les passagers lui suggèrent de se tourner vers le cinéma. Dès lors, il a une gestuelle et une attitude qui feront de lui le roi du cinéma indien par la suite. Durant cette période, il nourrit sa passion pour le théâtre en participant à de nombreuses pièces.


Vie personnelle et familiale
Rajinikanth épouse Latha Rangachari, le 26 février 1981, à l'âge de 31 ans à Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. Sa femme dirige actuellement une école nommée l'Ashram.
