Superstar Rajnikanth is fresh from the blockbuster success of “Jailer” which has done the unthinkable at the box office. For that film, even after seeing the result of Nelson’s Beast. The Thailavar went ahead doing a film with the director. And now, even before the release of this super successful director’s film, the star hero sealed him.
Looks like Sun Pictures’ which rolled Rajnikanth’s Jailer is not in the mood to leave the star hero anytime soon. Today, they have officially announced that #Thailavar171 will be directed by none other than Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is actually awaiting the release of Thalapathy Vijay’s Leo right now. This is a big surprise to all because many thought that Lokesh would pick up someone like Prabhas or Ram Charan for his next, while Atlee might direct Rajnikanth’s new film. In an epic twist, now Rajni-Lokesh project was announced.
On the other hand, already Lokesh and Anirudh have delivered stunners like Master and Vikram, and now they are joining forces for Rajni as well while their Leo treat is yet to be out. All said and done, whatever project Lokesh Kanagaraj sets up, it is turning out to be massive.
