With the success of his latest film Kabali, Tamil actor Rajinikanth is making headlines around the world. Even CNN got the Rajinikanth fever, and decided to do a feature on him, but ended up making a blunder that Indians (especially South Indians) won’t forgive anytime soon.
When CNN took to Twitter to share the story titled “Rajinikanth: Meet the superstar you may not have heard about,” they made the mistake of referring to the star as a “Bollywood hero,” and that’s when all hell broke loose.
While Rajinikanth has starred in many Bollywood films, the Baasha actor reached superstar status for his work in the Tamil film industry, often referred to as Kollywood.
Pretty much sums it up.
