Rajinikanth turned out to become a real superstar again by paying tribute to his 78 year old teacher. Rajini’s pedagogue B N Shanthamma, who educated him at Government Model Primary School in Bangalore, was under severe financial crisis. On Teacher’s day, she was credited a whopping amount of Rs 3 lakh by Superstar as a token of gratitude.
Superstar Rajinikanth, who got to know about his teacher’s poverty through his fan Rajni Murugan, asked his assistant to deposit the amount for her sustenance. Moved by the superstar’s gesture, Shanthamma expressed, ‘I have trained for Shivaji Rao (Rajinikanth original name) from 5th to 7th standard. During his studies, he used to be a prankster and a neat hand writer. I will soon meet the large hearted person.’
