Post the box office success of Thalapathy Vijay's Sarkar, director A R Murugadoss was revealed to join hands with superstar Rajinikanth, though an official word is yet to arrive on this. However, the director had been hinting about the project through his interviews and other media interactions. Being touted as a mass commercial entertainer with a fantasy element, this film is tentatively called as Thalaivar 166. The fans have been waiting to know about the star cast of the film and given the massive production scale, one could expect big names to be on-board this project. The latest we hear from our close sources is that this film will have Yogi Babu as the comedian.
The sensational comedy star is having a dream run in Kollywood and has shared screen space with a majority of the leading stars, including Vijay (Mersal, Sarkar), Ajith Kumar (Viswasam), Suriya (Thaanaa Serndha Koottam), Sivakarthikeyan (Remo), Vijay Sethupathi (Andavan Kattalai) and many others. Looks like his time has come to associate with the superstar himself for the first ever time. It can be noted that Yogi Babu played the comedian in Murugadoss' previous directorial venture - Sarkar, too. We are also told that the makers are on the verge of signing many other leading actors and we can expect an official announcement very soon.
According to the buzz, Thalaivar 166 will have music scored by Anirudh Ravichander, who has produced chart buster albums in the form of Petta with Rajinikanth and Kaththi with director A R Murugadoss. An exciting project is definitely on the cards!Read More
