Rajinikanth is embarking on an exciting new cinematic venture following the extraordinary success of his recent film Jailer, which stormed the box office. According to recent reports, the legendary actor has begun work on his upcoming project, tentatively titled Thalaivar 170.
The monumental success of Nelson Dilip Kumar’s film, which grossed an astounding 500 crores at the box office, is the driving force behind this new venture. Without a doubt, Rajinikanth is eager to ride this wave of success and enchant his adoring fans once more.
TJ Gnanavel, the accomplished director best known for his work on Suriya’s Jai Bhim, is said to be taking on the role of producer for Thalaivar 170. Lyca Productions, a notable banner known for supporting notable films such as Enthiran Part II and Ponniyin Selvan, is said to be in charge of production. In accordance with these developments, an auspicious pooja ceremony was planned to kick off the filming process on August 26 at Chennai’s prestigious Leela Palace. According to available information, filming will begin in the third week of September, with set construction already underway.
Fahadh Faasil’s potential role as Rajinikanth’s adversary is a significant revelation about the film. Amitabh Bachchan and Manju Warrier are rumoured to be considered for key roles. The names of Telugu stars Nani and Sharvanand have also surfaced, heightening expectations for a star-studded cinematic spectacle.
While finer details are still unknown, there is speculation that Rajinikanth will play a retired police officer in Thalaiver 170. According to unverified sources, the film will be titled Vettayaan and will be set against the backdrop of police encounter murders.
