Modest Achievers. Immodest Egonyms.

An egonym is a pompous title bestowed on a star by sycophants who call themselves fans. Egonyms are a very common practice in Kollywood. Strangely, the stars have no shame in flashing these silly prefixes in the title cards of their movies. Here's a collection of Kollywood Egonyms culled from the internet.

'Super Star' Rajinikanth
'Supreme Star' Sarath Kumar
'Ultimate Star' Ajith
'Little Super Star' Silambarasan
'Top Star' Prashanth
'Action King' Arjun

'Revolutionary Tamilian' Satyaraj
'Hero of 9 Emotions' Karthik
'Young Pinnacle' Prabhu
