Speaking of scores, if you have scored full marks, then I must say, you’re a true Thalaiva fan. I am sure, you would be also reaching the theatre a night before the film’s release to take part in the paal abishekam for the cutout.
For those who have scored 6 and above, you’re a genuine movie buff, who appreciates all actors equally. However, you still haven’t reached the lofty heights of being a member of Thalaivar Rasika Mandram.
If you have scored 4 and above, you are not there yet. My advice to you would be to binge-watch all superstar’s films this weekend and take the quiz again for a better score.
For those who managed to score 4 or below, we are guessing that you are a recent fan, who has probably only watched his latest films like Petta, Kabali, Kaala and Darbar. Don’t fret, you’ll get there soon. You can then take the quiz and flaunt your scores.
