It was heard that Rajinikanth will start working for Desingh Periyasamy's untitled movie for AGS Entertainment after the release of Siva's Annaatthe. The cryptic tweet from the production company a month ago and the filmmaker spotted with the creative producer of the production house added fuel to the expectations. 

The fact that Desingh is a self-confessed fan of the star made admirers of the Superstar pin high hopes on the movie. They have been waiting for an announcement on their matinee idol's next film ever since Annaatthe hit the screens on Deepavali. 

Desingh and Rajinikanth

When Desingh was spotted at the premiere of Kavin-starrer Lift (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) a month ago, he said that nothing has been confirmed and that he is not in a position to say anything about his next movie. He added that the fan made posters which have been appearing on social media do not have any connection with him.

However, he said that fans can expect an update in a month or two. This made them rejoice as they thought an official announcement on Rajinikanth's 169th project is likely to happen soon. 

But as per the latest reports, we hear that a project was being planned by AGS Entertainment with the star playing the lead and Desingh at the helm. But the film might be put on the backburner owing to budget constraints.  

There are also news doing the rounds that Desingh might direct Sivakarthikeyan if Rajini project fails to materalize and that the Superstar might be seen in Karthik Subbaraj directorial again. Earlier, Rajinikanth had appreciated Desingh after watching his debut film Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (streaming on Netflix). He had also asked the young filmmaker to come up with a story for him.
