Superstar Rajinikanth’s next film, tentatively titled as ‘Thalaivar 168’, is getting ready to go on floors. This Siva directorial is produced by Sun Pictures. Pre-production works are currently progressing which includes finalizing the cast. Recently, there were reports about the makers trying to rope in either of Khushbu or Meena to play an important role in the film.
It is now being heard that the makers have finalized on Meena. However, it is not yet known if she is paired with Rajinikanth in the film. Interestingly, it is worth a mention that, Meena has acted with superstar as a child artist in ‘Anbulla Rajinikanth’ and as an adult has paired opposite him in films like ‘Yejamaan’, ‘Veera’ and ‘Muthu’.
‘Thalaivar 168’ is said to be a rural-based mass entertainer, something that Rajinikanth has not done of late. On the technical side, the same team of director Siva’s last film ‘Viswasam’ has been retained, which includes composer Imman, DOP Vetri and editor Ruben.
