Rajinikanth will soon appear in a film director by Nelson Dilipkumar. A report by the Times of India, nicknamed Thalaivar169, claims that Rajinikanth is likely to start filming in August this year. The movie is said to have been filmed in multiple locations.
While the team has yet to share an official announcement about the other cast members, it is rumored that Ragini will be reuniting with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the film. Anirudh Ravicander has reportedly been linked to being the music composer.
Ragini was last seen in Feminine. The film starred Nayanthara in the lead with Keerthy Suresh, Meena, and Kushboo taking energetic roles. Meanwhile, Nelson’s last movie was Vijay’s monster. Although the film collected Rs 200 crore worldwide, it was expected to do better at the box office.
After the film’s disaster at the box office, it was rumored that Thalaivar169 is looking for another director. However, Nelson clarified that he is still the manager by updating his Twitter bio as manager of Thalaivar169.
Thalaivar 169 is funded by Sun Pictures. The production company Beast also supported it.
