Rajinikanth, one of India’s biggest film stars, has a fan in New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor. Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik tweeted a photo of Rajinikanth-starrer Lingaa, to which Taylor replied that he was “one of the greats.”


 

 


Quite apart from the fact that Rajinikanth has Sachin Tendulkar-level stardom in India, he has now influenced a cricketer who is in India for just about a month every year during the Indian Premier League (IPL). The fact that Rajinikanth can enchant people from as far as New Zealand is testament to his greatness.
