Superstar Rajnikanth is an evergreen hero who can make the people go crazy with just a head turn. His films created records that nobody even dreamt of touching. There was a time when his disasters collected more than the super hits of other heroes. But looks like his reign on South Indian cinema is coming to an end.
Over the past 4-5 years, his market took a severe beating because of disasters like 'Linga', 'Kabali' and 'Kaala'. Stars like Vijay and Ajith have overtaken him and are collecting huge revenues than superstar's films. Rajni's 'Petta' which got super hit talk last year failed to cross Vijay's 'Mersal' collections. Now, his recent outing 'Darbar' is failing to get decent collections outside Tamil Nadu. Though the film minted great collections on Day1, there was a drastic drop in its collections from the immediate next day and talk is that this flick will result in heavy losses for its buyers.
At a time when Vijay and Ajith's films are getting blockbusters just with average talk, Rajni is failing to create records with positive talk. This situation is higly worrying his fans and there are some people who are suggesting that this 70-year-old hero should gracefully retire before completely losing his craze.
