Superstar Rajinikanth turns 67 today – giving his legions of devoted fans an opportunity to celebrate. A star who holds a special place in our heart, there are several things about Rajini which have remained quintessential.

Sources close to Rajinikanth said he opted for a low-key birthday following Cyclone Ochki, in which nearly 500 Tamil fishermen are still missing, and 40 people had died. But this happens to be the third year Rajinikanth has chosen to stay away from the fan frenzy.
