When it comes to superstar Rajinikanth even the impossible seems possible. On silver screen he can single-handedly put the bad guys in their place, fight with corruption and do what not.

He can do all this in reel life but sadly the 65 year old superstar could not protect his Twitter account from being hacked in the real life.

On 2nd August, a tweet from Rajinikanth’s handle read ‘Rajinikanth #HitToKill’.

While everyone was still thinking what the superstar is trying to say with his tweet, his daughter Aishwarya Dhanush confirmed that his account was hacked. Here is her tweet:

Not only this, Rajinikanth who follows only 29 accounts, including six celebrities, started following other stars too when the account was hacked, reportedly. The ones which Rajinikanth followed immediately were Kamal Hassan, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Kabali’s director Pa Ranjith among others.

However, they were unfollowed when the problem was fixed.


The ones who have Rajinikanth in the following list are his daughters Soundarya and Aishwarya, son in law Dhanush, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, music maestro A.R. Rahman and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rajinikanth has over 3 million followers on the micro blogging website.

The gist of the story is that if the account of invincible Rajinikanth too can get hacked, none of us are safe.

A few days ago Rajinikanth’s movie ‘Kabali’ hit theatres and smashed many box office records. The movie earned Rs 205 crores worldwide in just 5 days.

In the movie ‘Thalaivar’ played the role of Kabaleeswaran, who fights for the rights of downtrodden Tamils in Malaysia. Rajinikanth as an ageing don impressed audience and critics alike.
