After returning from the annual spiritual pilgrimage in the Himalayas, Rajinikanth is all set to team up with filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj for a yet to be titled movie. However, the leading lady for the film is yet to be announced by the makers. Recently, there were rumors that the director is on a search for the female lead and names of actors like Deepika Padukone and Anjali were doing the rounds.
But the latest reports suggest South Indian diva Trisha Krishnan will play the lead role in the movie opposite Rajinikanth. This movie will mark Trisha’s first collaboration with Rajinikanth. However, nothing has been finalised yet.
Trisha had earlier expressed her interest to work with Rajinikanth because she hasn’t got a chance to work with him in spite of doing 50 plus movies. Interestingly Trisha has worked with all the top stars of Tollywood including Kamal Hassan, Vijay, Suriya, Ajith and Vikram.
The Pizza director met Rajinikanth last week at his residence to discuss about the film. If reports are anything to go by, the film’s shoot is expected to go on floors in August. Talking to a tabloid Karthik said, “Rajini sir has delivered a mind-blowing performance every time, but my favorite of all his works is Nalaava Nalala. I am eager to take my next with Rajini sir on the floors. Who would not like to work with him?”
The movie will have music by Anirudh Ravichander and the film will be produced by Sun Pictures.
Meanwhile, the makers of Rajinikanth’s film Kaala are not sure if the film will release as scheduled on April 27. Reportedly, the makers might push the release to the ongoing strike in the industry.
Superstar’s film 2.0 has also been postponed yet again. He will be seen sharing screen space with Akshay Kumar. Directed by Shankar, the film is likely to hit screens later this year.
