Although Ranjith's script features the Southern Megastar, but guess what? He is not the hero of the film. BollywoodLife has some EXCLUSIVE details...
The last one week has been filled with talk of how Superstar Rajinikanth has said yes to director Ranjith for his next film. However, there has been no official news from anyone including the producer who is said to be Kalaipuli Thanu. It has been said that Rajinikanth wants to make a quick film and is willing to allot only 45 days for this Ranjith film.
Now the talk is that Ranjith’s script features Rajinikanth but he is not the hero of the film. Apparently, he will be there in the movie for about 30-40 mins at the most. The movie is said to have no specific hero as much but will possibly be an ensemble cast with strong characters. In Madras, which featured Karthi, Ranjith had scripted strong roles for actors like Kalaiyarasan and Hari.
Director Ranjith is known to shoot dark, Chennai-centric small budget films and this movie will also be similar. There is talk that it might be like the Hindi film Sarkar and Rajinikanth may be seen in a role like Amitabh Bachchan but this is just a rumour. This will be the director’s first film with a huge star and Ranjith is likely to rope in well-known names for the others roles in the film as well. If all goes well, the movie may release for Pongal 2016 or even for Rajinikanth's birthday in December!
Meanwhile, the buzz is that Kanchana 2 director Raghava Lawrence has also narrated two scripts to Rajinikanth and is waiting for a nod from the Superstar.
