Superstar Rajinikanth’s home in Chennai

In spite of having some of the most successful movies under his name and being the highest-grossing actor in Tamil cinema history, Rajinikanth’s financial position and his real estate investments are quite modest. Here is a look at the ‘Thalaiva’s’ homes in Chennai and Pune

Rajinikanth, also known as ‘Thalaiva’ or ‘Thalaivar ’ is undoubtedly one of the most popular personalities in India, with millions of fans globally. While his popularity can be attributed to his unique style and dialogue deliveries, his life is also nothing short of inspirational. In fact, he is the only Indian actor to be featured in the school syllabus of one of the leading Indian education boards. Rajinikanth recently announced his intention to not contest the upcoming legislative elections in Tamil Nadu, which came as a big shock to his supporters. With some of the most successful movies under his name and being the highest-grossing actor in Tamil cinema history, superstar Rajinikanth’s financial position and his real estate investments are very modest.

According to media reports, the ‘Thalaivar ’ (the boss or leader) owns residential properties in Chennai’s Poes Garden, Bengaluru and Pune. Apart from this, he also owns a wedding hall in Chennai, for which he reportedly paid Rs 6.5 lakhs as property tax to the Greater Chennai Corporation in October 2020.

The Poes Garden property is Rajinikanth’s permanent residence and is currently valued at Rs 35 crores. This is one of the affluent areas in Chennai, where most of the properties are owned by politicians, judges, industrialists, etc. The average rate per sq ft in this area is Rs 35,000, which may go up to Rs 40,000, depending upon the plot size, location and type of the property. Thalaiva has two daughters, Aishwarya and Soundarya, who are married to Tamil actors and producers. They are often seen at the Poes Garden home, visiting their parents.

Recently, Rajinikanth visited his brother who stays in Bengaluru, to seek blessings from him for his political life. It is said that Rajinikanth and his brother grew up in Bengaluru and before Thalaivar became a superstar, his brother supported him in everything. Even after Rajinikanth emerged as a star, his brother Satyanarayana continued to reside in Bengaluru and settled there with his family.
