To Maharashtrian parents of Tamil ancestry, who never knew for him,that success and laurels beckoned galore;
Who never knew what fate had in store for him,
Despite the fact that it seemed dim;
But he proved things wrong, making ends meet as a bus conductor,
With his inimitable mannerisms, he arose as an actor,
First in theatre and then in cinema,
After being rechristened by his mentor, he became an enigma!
His popularity with the masses rose with time, which he could not while (away),
Because of his humility, genuine nature and ability to act in all genres with style (that was there to stay);
The 'punch dialogues' and the amazing, Newtonian flick of the cigarette,
On messing with him, getting kicked in the air was what the goons would get!
He became the messiah of the proletariat against the cruel socialists, in a society rampant with corruption,
Even with hi-tech humanoids to save and help the world's population;
He's well-known,apart from South of the Vindhyas, in the land of the Rising Sun,
Even in other parts of India and the globe, his stunts and dialogues can stun!
Jokes apart,come whatever may,
He's on the way to a speedy recovery in the abode of the Merlion, which is the news of today!
Merely mentioning his name can make one shiver, what do you say?
Unmatched in power and status as the leader, he commands respect in his way (his own,unique way!)
