Engal Arasan: black man, big history
What is the biggest question star-crazy persons in Tamil Nadu are asking now? Is Rajni acting in Engal Arasan?! Ever since Engal Arasan promos – showing Rajinikanth with the caption “black man, big history” – appeared on walls, his fans are in a frenzy!
Some are confused if superstar has decided to do an interim project to enthrall his fans who will have to wait for more than a year for the release of Endhiran (also spelt as Enthiran)! But a Rajni film cannot start so secretively! And everyone knows that too!
The caption “black man, big history” is what has caught the attention of the public. Truly, in a world obsessed with lighter skin colour, some of the biggest history makers are dark-skinned. People who worry about their skin colour should draw inspiration from dark-skinned leaders. Rajni is dark but never allowed that to stand in his way to his super stardom (linguists should coin some new term to describe his stardom; it is so great!). His achievement – from a humble man to a film artist recognized internationally – is phenomenal! Barack Obama is dark-skinned, but he did not let his colour or race prevent him from becoming the president of USA. It is definitely not easy to overcome the stigma that society attaches with skin colour. Rajni’s achievement in cinema is nothing short of Barack Obama’s recent history-making victory. Truly, Rajni is a legend and a living example of the adage “black is beautiful”!
More intriguing is another byline seen in the promo – “indru vettai, viraivil kottai” – which alludes to his fans’ wish that the actor should enter politics. Well, keep visiting TamilWire.com. We will bring more updates about this movie which seems to be about the phenomenon called Rajinikanth!
Soon, you can also relish a re-release of Baasha, a mega hit of Rajinikanth. Yes! Baasha, a film released in 1996 and considered one of the best Rajni films ever, will be re-released in 11 theatres in Chennai on February 27th. It looks like Rajni fans are in for a big treat this month!
