Superstar Rajinikanth's next project confirmed with director Siva!
Superstar Rajinikanth's next with Siruthai Siva has been titled as #Thalaivar168 for now.
It is common knowledge that Superstar Rajinikanth is currently working on the movie Darbar with AR Murugadoss handling the direction and Lyca Productions bankrolling this film. This film will have Nayanthara as the female lead with Yogi Babu, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Nivetha Thomas and Dalip Tahil in important roles. Anirudh is scoring the music and Santosh Sivan is handling the cinematography with Sreekar Prasad taking care of the editing. This movie will see Rajini donning the Khaki after a gap of 27 years, since Pandian. In recent times, there have been a number of rumours going around about Rajini’s next movie. The most prominent amongst them has been that Rajini would be seen in director Siva's next project.
Now, we have confirmation that these rumours are indeed true! Superstar Rajinikanth's next project will indeed be with director Siruthai Siva and this project will be produced by Sun Pictures. The reports also state that Yuvan Shankar Raja has been roped in to compose the music for this movie, which is tentatively titled #Thalaivar168! Darbar is slated for a Pongal 2020 release and is expected to complete shooting before the end of this year. This new project with Siva is expected to go on floors around the same time. Actually, Siva's last movie Viswasam clashed with Rajinikanth's last release Petta at the Box Office, for this year's Pongal.
Viswasam, starring Ajith and Nayanthara in the lead was directed by Siva and this was the fourth time collaboration between the director and Thala. Their collaborations have all become super hits at the Box Office but Viswasam set unprecedented records in the collections and this skyrocketed director Siva's prospects. The most telling feature was that despite going up against a Rajinikanth movie, Siva's directorial came up trumps. Also, Thala Ajith's latest release Nerkonda Paarvai has also been garnering a great response at the theatres. There are a lot of expectations on this new combination of Siva and Rajinikanth! Let's wait and watch for more updates on this project!Read More
