Rajnikant joins twitter ~ Ambarish travels to attend film 'Linga' pooja

My KQ on Cinema is pretty low and self-confessedly, I don’t write about cinema much.... !!  Malavallii Huche Gowda Amarnath  more popularly known as Ambareesh  - is a  film actor and a prominent politician from Karnataka.  He  currently represents  Mandya assembly constituency and is the Minister of Housing for the Karnataka State. He did not campaign due to ill-health but was in news recently. 

On a different ground, the list of eight individuals given a clean chit by the Income Tax department in the black money case is out, but no high-profile politicians are among them, as was widely speculated.  The list, handed over on Monday to senior advocate and petitioner Ram Jethmalani by the Revenue Department in line with an order issued by the Supreme Court on May 1, includes the names of Prabodh Kirtilal Mehta and Rashmi Kirtilal Mehta, co-owners of Mumbai's renowned Lilavati Hospital. It also include the co-founders of Malayala Manorama group, Kandathil Mammen and Arun Mammen.  The names were revealed a week after the apex court on April 22 threatened to initiate contempt of court proceedings against the Revenue Secretary, if its repeated orders over the past four years were not immediately complied with.  But Jethmalani, who has demanded that the black money deposited by Indians abroad should be brought home and the individuals be named, is not satisfied.  The disclosure is insignificant – big fish protected, a Senior lawyer representing Jethmalani is quoted as saying.

a picture circulating in web on his simplicity ...

Heard of Internet Meme..... some on Rajnikant, the popular actor :
•  Google won't find Rajinikanth because you don't find Rajinikanth; Rajinikanth finds you. - His address is
•  Water boils faster when Rajinikanth stares at it.
•  Rajinikanth can answer a missed call & can speak Braille
•  Rajanikanth can delete the Recycling Bin.
•  When Rajanikanth enters a room, he doesn’t turn the lights on,……… …. he turns the dark off.

Every film of his would have a ‘punch dialogue’  ~ from ‘idhu eppadi irukku’ (how is that); Andavan solran. Arunachalam seiran; Singam Singulathaan varum [lion will come alone] ~ things go viral.... and now the present viral thing is his twitter handle.  On Monday, Rajinikanth became the first top Tamil film star to join microblogging site Twitter and even before he sent his first tweet he had nearly 17,000 followers; and when he finally did send out his first tweet at around four in the evening, it was retweeted at least 5,000 times by his fans.

"Salutation to the Lord. Vanakkam anaivarukkum!! A big thank you to all my fans. Excited on this digital journey," the 63-year-old actor tweeted from his handle @SuperStarRajini..... a few minutes after his joining, Twitter India posted the message: "Vanakkam, Namaste, Salaam, Hello Rajinikanth! Please join us in welcoming @SuperStar-Rajini to Twitter." Though fans were excited about the star entering the social media, critics pointed out that this is just another publicity stunt for his upcoming film "Kochadaiiyaan" that is scheduled to release this week.

At the time of posting this at around 10 pm on 6.5.2014 – he has 253669 followers.  

Akshaya Thrithiyai is an auspicious day not only for buying gold or property, it is also said to be be a good day to commence any project. Rajinikant  began his next film Lingaa with a customary poojai at the Samundeeswari temple in Mysore. Clad in a white silk dhoti and shirt, superstar was style and tradition personified as ever and he was accompanied by director K S Ravikumar.  Actor politician Ambarish was present there too with his wife Sumalatha. Ambareesh recently had a stint in hospital following a lung infection. Fans of the actor were on edge as the actor spent quite a few days at the Bangalore hospital before being shifted out to Singapore. The actor returned hale and hearty, but recently was at a hospital in Mysore. He was perhaps staying away from Bangalore to avoid commotion ... still travelled to Mysore to attend the function of film shows Rajni’s popularity ~ and the way he continues to be treated by people.
