RKFI backs out of STR 48?

Silambarasan has teamed up with director Desingh Periasamy for STR 48.

The project was announced a year ago, and a concept art featuring Silambarasan in dual roles was released in February.

However, there have been no indications of the movie commencing production.

Kamal Haasan was initially set to produce STR 48 under his banner Raaj Kamal Films International.

However, according to the latest buzz, RKFI plans to transfer the project to a different production company due to the high budget.

Reportedly, they are in talks with Connekkt Media and PK Prime Production, the producers of Dhanush’s Ilaiyaraaja biopic, to take over STR 48.

Meanwhile, Silambarasan is starring alongside Kamal Haasan in director Mani Ratnam’s gangster action film, Thug Life, produced by RKFI, Madras Talkies, and Red Giant Movies.

STR 48 is expected to commence by the end of the year once the production details are finalised.
