Kalaipuli Thanu to bankroll Rajinikanth’s next?

It looks like Superstar Rajinikanth and producer Kalaipuli S Thanu would join hands once again. After a long gap, they ventured together for ‘Kabali’ a few yeas ago.

And now, sources say Thanu has agreed to bankroll Rajinikanth’s new film for which director Siva of ‘Siruthai’, ‘Veeram’, ‘Vedhalam’, ‘Vivegam’ and ‘Viswasam’ fame is the frontrunner.

“Siva recently narrated a gripping script to the superstar. Rajini is impressed by it and will start shooting for it soon after works on ‘Darbar’ directed by A R Murugadosss are over,” sources add.

Meanwhile, the third schedule of ‘Darbar’ started in Mumbai on Friday. Rajini will be back in Chennai today and will attend the audio launch of Suriya-starrer ‘Kaappaan’ directed by K V Anand on Sunday. Both ‘Darbar’ and ‘Kaappaan’ are being produced by Lyca, it may be noted.

The audio launch of ‘Kaappaan’ will also see the presence of director Shankar, who last helmed Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’ and is currently busy with Kamal Haasan-starrer ‘Indian 2’.
