Holi, a special day for Rajnikanth
While celebrating the auspicious festival called Holi, let us also roll a few years back to 1975. So what happened on this festival day back in 1975? Well, it was the beginning of something substantial. This day announced the arrival of 'Rajinikanth'. 

Superstar Rajinikanth Gets The Biggest Gift Of His Life On This Auspicious Festival Day! Rajinikanth had mentioned in an interview that it was on the festival day of Holi, he was given three options by the legendary director K Balachander. Srikkanth, Rajinikanth and Chandrakanth were the names offered by the Apoorva Raagangal director to then Shivaji Rao Gaekwad. Shivaji Rao chose Rajinikanth and then Rajinikanth was chosen by destiny.

From that day onwards, it is said that Rajinikanth made it a point to make a phone call to K Balachander as a mark of gratitude on the propitious day of Holi each and every year. However, at a recent function, Balachander reminded Rajinikanth that he had not been getting his routine phone calls of late.

Rajinikanth then promised him that he would start making calls from the following year and excused himself for not making those calls due to his busy schedule and commitments. As we all know that the maverick director passed away recently, this Holi might not be as auspicious as it was for Rajinikanth all these years. Also, going forward the star actor will not be able to make those routine calls to his mentor on the festival day of Holi.
