Nelson and Anirudh with Rajinikanth
With Kamal Haasan's Vikram continuing its juggernaut at the box office, all eyes are now on Rajinikanth's next film. As the Ulaganayagan has delivered a much-needed blockbuster after several years, fans of Superstar hope that their matinee idol will give a comeback in style with Thalaivar 169.
Nelson Dilipkumar was roped in to helm the star's next movie even before the director's Beast (streaming on Netflix) hit the screens. But the Vijay-starrer opening to mixed reviews made fans of Rajinikanth, too, upset. Movie lovers are curious to know how Nelson is going to handle a star like Rajini after delivering a movie which didn't meet the expectations.
Ever since Thalaivar 169 was announced, many speculations have been doing the rounds with regard to its cast. The names of Aishwarya Rai, Ramya Krishnan, Vadivelu, Silambarasan and Sivakarthikeyan among others are said to be essaying important roles in the project which will be bankrolled by Sun Pictures.
Anirudh's inclusion as the music composer is the only update makers have announced till date. But this hasn't deterred rumour mongers from coming up with unconfirmed news. The latest on the movie is that Rajinikanth might choose one among the 30 titles Nelson has suggested to him.
Criminal, Boss, Samrat and Jailor are the names that are going viral among the star's fans on social media. Some of them have even come up with fan made posters with these titles. With the project expected to go on floors in a month or two, official updates on the film are expected to be made soon.
Rajinikanth's last outing Annaatthe (streaming on Netflix) directed by Siva didn't meet the expectations, and hence, his fans are expecting nothing less than a blockbuster.
