On Saturday, South Indian superstar Rajinikanth celebrated his 70th birthday. Local TV channels beamed footage of hundreds of fans thronging Rajinikanth's residence in the morning to wish the superstar success in his future endeavours.

The actor kick-started the celebrations by cutting his birthday cake in the presence of his family members.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was among the first to wish him.

Modi tweeted, 'Dear @rajinikanth Ji, wishing you a Happy Birthday! May you lead a long and healthy life'.

Earlier this month, Rajinikanth had announced that he would launch a political party in January next year, nearly three years after he had first indicated his intentions to join politics.
