"Rajinikanth requests his fans not to celebrate his birthday," his manager Riaz Ahmed tweeted on Friday.

 

 

Ahmed added that Rajinikanth asked his fans not to put up posters and banners. It is believed that Rajinikanth has taken this decision as a mark of respect to former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa who passed away earlier this week.

 

On the career front, the 65-year-old actor is busy shooting for Shankar's magnum opus, '2.o'.

 

Some memorable Rajinikanth films include 'Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu', 'Thalapathi`, 'Chandramukhi', 'Annamalai`, `Basha`, `Padayappa`, 'Sivaji', `Enthiran`, 'Katha Sangama', 'Puttanna Kanagal', 'Moondru Mudichu', 'Shankar Salim Simon', 'Gayathri', 'Galate Samsara', 'Kabali' to name a few.
