With lot of speculation doing the rounds about superstar Rajinikanth’s next film, the latest buzz doing the rounds in K-town is that the superstar would be teaming up with director Pa Ranjith of ‘Attakathi’ and ‘Madras’ fame. The untitled movie will reportedly be produced by Kalaipuli.S.Thanu under the banner of Kaliapuli Films International.
There was news that Rajini has given nod to star director Shankar for big budget film but it is said that the deal between Rajinikanth and Pa Ranjith took place all of a sudden. As Shankar’s movie is expected to take time and pre-production work alone will most likely be completed around January 2016, Rajinikanth opted for Ranjith’s flick.
The superstar was apparently so impressed with the movie script that he allotted 45 days to P.Ranjith to complete his portion. Buzz is that Rajinikanth will not have a heroine in this movie, as he will play the role of an aged gangster in this Telugu-Tamil bilingual movie while Santhosh Narayanan will compose the music for this film.
Rajini is reportedly said to be making this this film on a minimum budget as he had a bad run at the box office in the last five years with his two releases ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ directed by his daughter Soundarya and ‘Lingaa’ directed by KS Ravikumar. The principal shooting begins by June this year and might release around Pongal 2016.
