Director Siva talks about working with Rajini

Director Siva is on cloud nine. For, his dream of making a film with superstar Rajinikanth has come true. He will be directing the thalaivar’s 168th film, which is to be produced by Sun Pictures.

Says the Siruthai, Veeram and Viswasam maker, “I’m a big fan of Rajinikanth sir right from my school days so directing him is a blessing.”

He added: “The shoot of the film will mostly happen in India. You will get an official confirmation on the cast and crew by next week. Of course, there will be a lot of action scenes but the story is set in the family backdrop”.

This will be the first time that Siva will direct Rajinikanth. It is rumoured that the film will have the same crew as Viswasam, with composer Imman and cinematographer Vetri joining the team.

Referred to as #Thalaivar168, this film is said to be an out-and-out commercial entertainer, in typical Siva style. Shooting is expected to commence during the first week of Decembmer.

Sun Pictures tweeted on Friday: “After the blockbuster hits — Enthiran and Petta, we come together with Superstar @rajinikanth for the third time for Thalaivar 168. Superstar’s next movie, directed by @directorsiva.”
