In the upcoming film Lal Salaam, Superstar Rajinikanth, who is currently filming Nelson Dilipkumar's Jailer, will make a cameo appearance. The film, produced by Lyca Productions and directed by his daughter Aishwaryaa, will star Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in the key roles. Oscar-winning composer will be working on a Rajinikanth movie for the first time in eight years, after Lingaa (2014); except for the 2018 sequel to Enthiran, 2.O.

Vishnu Vishal had never in his wildest dreams imagined sharing screen space with the Superstar. “I received a call from Aishwaryaa ma'am, so we met. She provided a detailed summary of the script for me. I didn't know Rajini sir was involved in the beginning. I believed that was the right course of action because she didn't want to capitalise on his fame, but rather put her faith in the project.”

It is a blessing that Rajinikanth is involved in Lal Salaam, the actor continued. “The other lead character would be played by my friend, Vikranth. They told me that Rahman sir had joined the crew after everything was completed. I wasn't sure how to respond because I was in for yet another delightful surprise.”

Superstar's role would be more than just a cameo, assures Vishnu Vishal. “Rajini sir will make a special appearance, as the poster indicates. As a result, he will, undoubtedly, have a substantial amount of time on screen.”

Even though Lal Salaam is a story about cricket, according to Vishnu, it will be very different from Jeeva, his earlier one, on cricket. “You won't find even the slightest resemblance to that movie. Lal Salaam, scheduled for release in 2023 along with biggies Jailer, Varisu and Thunivu, has a compelling story with many different emotions.”

The sports drama is directed by Chella Ayyavu and co-financed by Ravi Teja and Vishnu Vishal under their respective production houses, RT Teamworks and Vishnu Vishal Studioz. Aishwarya Lekshmi stars as the female lead.
