Amitabh Bachchan - India's most recognized face, the icon of the icons has influenced, ruled the hearts of millions and will continue to do so. The megastar has huge contribution in shaping the career of superstar Rajinikanth.

Billed as the biggest and the most pious bond of the Indian film industry, The Shahenshah of Hindi Film Industry (he doesn't like the term Bollywood) - Mr Bachchan and the south sensation Rajnikanth share a bonding which is a striking mix of friendship, guru chela (teacher student), brothers, man Friday and motivator.

Thalaiva's (referred to Rajnikanth in respect which means Sir, Boss) walk to stardom is inspired from Mr. Bachchan's iconic blockbusters. Rajinikanth has starred in not one, two or three but eleven remakes of Mr. Bachchan's blockbusters. If we also take BAASHA (1995) which highlights it resemblance to Mr. Bachchan's HUM (1991) - will always be remembered for the ‘cult' Jumma Chumma De De, the list makes it a perfect dozen.

Starting with an extended cameo in NAAN VAZAVAIPEN (1979) in the remake of MAJBOOR that starred Sivaji Ganeshan, the legacy that continued is as follows
