India s superstar Rajinikanth celebrates his 66th birthday on Monday along with India s champion batsman Yuvraj Singh. Knowing the fan following and the aura that Rajinikanth carries along, the amount of wishes that poured was unexplainable. But it was Twitter s king Virender Sehwag who wished Thalaivar three hours before his birthday. The wishes continued to follow with Ravindra Jadeja s parody account also wishing Thalaivar in style. But amidst the havoc created by cyclone Vardah in Chennai, Rajinikanth found ways to reciprocate to his fans and celebrities who wished him on this special day. What caught the eye was two legends exchanging tweets on Monday afternoon.

Rajinikanth not only thanked Sehwag for wishing him but also sent out heartfelt pain to those affected by cyclone Vardah. Apart from the cricketer, Bollywood and Kollywood celebrities also wished the superstar. Amitabh Bachchan, Juhi Chawla, his daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth were among the few who wished him on this day. Few days back, Chennai went through traumatic eight days mourning over their Late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa s death due to sudden cardiac arrest. Rajinikanth attended the funeral at Rajaji Hall on Tuesday morning. One can also never forget when the legends MS Dhoni and Rajinikanth had met in Chennai at the latter s residence during the movie promotions of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.
