Today, Amitabh Bachchan, the Shahenshah of Bollywood, turned 80, and he was showered with birthday greetings from celebrities all over the world. Among them was Tamil superstar Rajinikanth.

The one and only superstar of the illustrious Indian film community turns eighty today. To my closest and most revered Amitabh Ji: Happy Birthday! Warmest wishes and sincere affection, always.”
The southern Indian superstar Rajinikanth wasn’t the only one to claim that the legend had served as an inspiration.
