Superstar Rajinikanth sent his fans into a tizzy a few days ago with the release of his upcoming film, Kaala’s teaser. It is one of the most anticipated films of the year, along with his sci-fi film, also starring Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson, that’s again slated to release this year. Not just that. His fans are also awaiting more details about his next venture, which was announced a couple of days ago. Production house, Sun Pictures, had revealed its next venture with the superstar, which will be directed by Pizza and Jigarthanda fame director Karthik Subbaraj.  Nothing more about the film was disclosed at the time of the film’s announcement. However, if latest reports are to be believed, then actor Vijay Sethupathi has been approached to play the antagonist.

This clash between Vijay Sethupathi and ‘Thalaivar’, Rajinikanth, is only increasing our anticipation for the film. It is definitely something fans will throng in great numbers to watch. The makers are reportedly finalising the cast and crew of the project and even the title of the film, which is currently not known. Vijay’s close association with filmmaker Karthik and his last two three hit films, ‘Pizza’, ‘Jigarthanda’ and ‘Iraivi’ are noteworthy. This film, like most Rajinikanth films will be made on a grand scale and will be produced by Sun Pictures that has earlier bankrolled Rajinikanth’s ‘Enthiran’–the prequel of 2.0. Check out the post they had put up a few days ago, announcing the venture.

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has wrapped up shooting for both his films, 2.0 (which is currently in the post production phase) and Kaala whose impressive teaser was released a few days ago. Helmed by Pa Ranjith, Kaala will have Rajinikanth play a Mumba-based gangster. The film will also feature Huma Qureshi, Eswari Rao, Nana Patekar and Samuthirakani in important roles. Kaala’ s music is composed by Santhosh Narayanan and is slated to release on April 27.
