Dr Gayathri Sreekanth’s biography on Superstar Rajinikanth titled – ‘The Name Is Rajinikanth’ will be launched on March 6 at Taj Connemara in Chennai by Amitabh Bachchan.The book with 384 pages and 130 pictures is priced at Rs 495. The book published by Om Books International has foreword by Kamal Haasan, K.Balachander, AVM Saravanan and Chief Minister Karunanidhi.
This is what Rajinikanth’s close friend and fiercest competitor Kamal Haasan had to tell about the book:
“Dr Gayathri Sreekanth has a unique viewpoint. An angle Rajini fans most cherish. A low angle shot looking up at their hero. Dr Gayathri has not destroyed truth for the sake of sensationalism. A book of this sort in English is long overdue. Precious, little, private details about the superstar fills the book. Though I know most of them, it is still a good read. The rise of Rajini is a notable achivement and will be remembered in Tamil commercial cinema history. So will Dr Gayathri’s book. Have a good read.”
