The celeb couple have faced their share of highs and lows
One of the most enduring relationships in Tamil cinema is the one Superstar Rajinikanth and his spouse, Latha Rangachari share. In a time when relationships are falling apart left, right and centre, the couple has completed a whopping 35 years of marriage. So on this memorable day let us take a little look at their journey so far.
Latha met Rajinikanth on the sets of Thillu Mullu in 1981. Latha was conducting an interview with the star, and Thalaivar, being the boss that he is, proposed to her right away. The then Ms Rangachari later got to know about his childhood hardships and breakdowns and developed feelings for him. However, her family being conservative, the responsibility to convince her parents fell on actor YG Mahendran, who is Latha's brother and was good friends with the Superstar from the very start. Fortunately, everything went smoothly and the two got happily married on 26 February 1981 in Tirupati.
But their marriage was not a bed of roses by any means. Back in the 80s, there were rumours of Rajini being with other women and things were not so smooth between the two. A separation seemed inevitable. Apparently, only after fans threatened suicide, they decided against it.
Whatever, may be the case, things must have surely patched up between the two as they now have two lovely daughters and a long, fulfilling marriage.
We certainly hope that the Superstar and his wife stay together like this always and celebrate many more anniversaries like this one.
