Thalaivar 171: Superstar Rajinikanth to team up with THIS popular actor-filmmaker after Jailer?

The shooting of Rajinikanth's Jailer, being helmed by Nelson Dilipkumar, is happening at a brisk pace. Though the release date of the project bankrolled by Sun Pictures is yet to be announced, we hear that the movie is likely to hit the screens as a summer release.

The film's complete cast and crew details are yet to be announced; fans are also awaiting the first look poster of the film, though a couple of stills have been unveiled by the team. The prime attraction of the movie, apart from the Superstar's presence, is going to be Anirudh's music.

It was heard that the numero uno Tamil star is likely to team up with Cibi Chakravarthi of Don fame for a film under Lyca Productions. But it looks like the former isn't pleased with the narration. The latest we hear is that Pradeep Ranganathan, who made heads turn with the blockbuster movie Love Today, might grab the chance.

The young filmmaker, who also made his acting debut with the recently released rom-com, is in the UK and will be narrating the story to the production house who has signed up for a two-film deal with Rajinikanth.

The Annaatthe star will also be seen in his daughter Aishwarya's directorial flick Lalsalam in 2023. The latter is returning to direction after a seven-year hiatus. The movie, starring Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in lead roles, is set in the backdrop of cricket, and will feature the star in a cameo.

Arunraja Kamaraj's name did the rounds earlier with regard to helming a film with the Superstar for Boney Kapoor's production. But the leading producer denied the news from his social media page.
