Kalanithi Maran is a force to reckon with. He launched SUN TV in 1993 and quickly became a force to reckon with after dabbling with his family business. His reported net worth is around Rs 29,000 crore that makes him the richest filmmaker in India; richer than Bhushan Kumar, Karan Johar, and Gauri Khan. His production house has bankrolled some of the biggest blockbusters such as Enthiran, Beast, Petta, Sarkar, and Jailer.

Rajinikanth’s Jailer turned out to be a huge blockbuster at the box-office. And Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan also created history by raking over Rs 70 crore on a single day, highest for a Hindi film.

However, in Malaysia, Jailer created a new record by collecting over Rs 25 crore, marching ahead of SRK’s blockbuster.

In a video recently shared by PTI, a couple could be seen telling enthusiastically that they have traveled to Chennai from Japan to enjoy Rajini’s film. Yasuda Hidetoshi and his wife can be seen wearing Rajinikanth-themed t-shirts in the video. They also carried a prop that had Rajinikanth and Tamannaah Bhatia’s photo from Kaavaalaa printed on it.

During an interaction with the news agency, Yasuda revealed he is a die-hard admirer of the superstar and has been a fan for almost 20 years now. He said that the first Rajinikanth films he watched were Muthu (1995) and Baashha (1995). He also enacted a few scenes from Jailer and older Rajinikanth films, delivering dialogues from the films.
