Superstar Rajinikanth had supported Madhi by paying his school fees. And this young man is now repaying his gratitude for the help Thaaivar has done. Madhi is now a poster and banner designer who keeps making banner work of Rajinikanth and his films often. Thalaivar fans approach him for all the banner ahead of the release of the film.
Ask him about Rajinikanth’s help, Madhi says, “My family is poor and my mother worked at Rajinikanth’s house. Rajini sir paid for my school fees. My grandfather also used to work there. He was a corporation worker and used to clean the area around Rajinikanth and Jayalalithaa’s house (Both of them live in Poes Garden). Sometimes, he works inside Rajinikanth’s house too. So, Superstar would chat with my grandfather while reading the newspaper. Every year during Diwali our entire family would go to his house. Rajini sir would give us sweets and new clothes. He also gives money to my grandfather for his work.”
“Rajini sir helped us when we were struggling and I got a good education because of him. So, I need to repay him. I am proud and happy to make his posters and banners,” he adds.
