Rajinikanth Surprises BMTC in Bengaluru, Relives Bus Conductor Days

Superstar Rajinikanth took a trip down memory lane as he made a surprise visit to the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) bus stand in the city. The 72-year-old actor, who once worked as a bus conductor, spent a few joyous minutes with the BMTC drivers, conductors, and other staff at Jayanagar.

Before becoming a legendary Tamil actor, Rajinikanth, then known as Shivaji Rao Gaikwad, was spotted by the late K Balachander, who gave him his first break in the hit film ‘Aboorva Ragangal’ in 1975. During his nostalgic visit, Rajinikanth was warmly greeted by the Traffic Transit Management Center (TTMC) staff of BMTC, who were thrilled to see him.

He chatted with the staff, took selfies, and spread joy to all. Rajinikanth also paid a visit to Raghavendra Swami Math, adding a spiritual touch to his trip to Bangalore. The actor, who spent his childhood in Bengaluru and lived in the city until the age of 22, worked as a conductor in the erstwhile Bangalore Transport Services (BTS), now known as BMTC.

After nearly two years, Rajinikanth returned to the silver screen with the commercially successful film ‘Jailer‘, directed by Nelson Dilipkumar. Despite his stardom, Rajinikanth remains grounded and connected to his past.
