Apart from the south Indians, who have been following Rajnikanth, can anyone write five lines about the actor's private life? Do the names Latha and Soundarya ring a bell? And does anyone know from which village or town this man, who came to the silver screen from a conductor job, is really from? What were his parents? Does he have siblings? What do they do? Rajnikanth has largely kept his private lives, where they should belong.
Amitabh Bachchan came with an illustrious legacy and naturally, it follows him. His wife is a celebrity; his son and daughter-in-law hog headlines. Amitabh returns home to more celebrities; he lives in the glare of lime lights. For good or bad, he must live with it.
