Close on the heels of acting with superstar Rajinikanth in Darbar, Nayanthara has been roped in to act with him once again, this time for Siva directed film, tentatively titled Thalaivar-168.
Producer Sun Pictures said in a tweet, “Lady Superstar #Nayanthara joins the cast of #Thalaivar168@rajinikanth @directorsiva.”
Thalaivar 168, is touted to be a rural entertainer directed by Siruthai Siva. The film’s cast comprises of Khushbu, Meena, Keerthy Suresh, Prakash Raj and Soori in pivotal roles. After Nayanthara’s inclusion, it is unclear whether she is paired opposite Rajinikanth or not. However, it is said she has been roped in for the movie since there is an interesting role for her in it.
The film’s music will be composed by D Imman, making it his first time collaboration with Rajinikanth. Imman has worked with director Siva on multiple projects including his last, Viswasam. Siva’s standard technicians, cinematographer Vetri and editor Ruben, have also been roped in for this film.
Meanwhile, there is a shocking allegation regarding her which will not please her fans. As per media reports, producer K Rajan has claimed that due to Nayanthara, the overall budget of a film goes haywire.
He spoke about how Nayanthara is always accompanied by 6-7 assistants whose daily salary is 7-8k. Adding further, he said that it increases the budget of the film unnecessarily as only the cost of salary to her assistants round up in lakhs.
