The Boss!!!

It is often said that it takes a certain something, referred to, by the people who know these things, as the X-factor, to go from mere stardom to superstardom. With Rajnikanth, however, there is no such unknown quantity. What he has, in abundant measure, is the unique ability to keep his mouth open at a precise aperture regardless of whether he’s walking, talking, chewing gum, dancing (his signature step appears easy, but that’s only until you attempt it – one hand on head, one on hip, and perfect synchronous motion in two parallel arcs) or dodging a bullet and shooting one (to be split into two by means of a strategically placed dagger held at the muzzle, to deal with multiple large men of dubious morals) at the same time. No ordinary mortal can maintain such a delicate distance between upper and lower lip like thalaivar can. Particularly impressive is the nonchalant ease with which he keeps the viewer’s eyes riveted on his mouth even with the added visual treat of peroxide blonde hair.
