8 films of Rajinikanth that failed miserably .. Surprisingly unheard of film names
Rajinikanth is at the peak of Tamil cinema that no one can touch. Not only in Tamil but also in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi. Still, it is possible that he was the first Indian film to run for 500 days in Japan. Some of Rajinikanth’s films at such heights have been washed out in the 1980s. That too has been waiting for some films in the theater since day one.
