Nawazuddin Siddiqui starts shooting for Thalaivar 165
Rajinikanth is currently shooting for his upcoming movie with director Karthik Subbaraj. Sun Pictures is producing this high profile project that boasts of a huge star cast. Vijay Sethupathi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Trisha, Simran, Bobby Simha and Megha Akash are playing major roles in the movie.
Nawazuddin Siddqui, who is unarguably one of the finest actors in Indian cinema, is making his debut in South cinema with this movie (tentatively titled as Thalaivar 165). The actor took to social media to post a photo of him rehearsing his lines ahead of shoot. He captioned it as,
Rehearsing my lines for my first Tamil movie #Thalaivar165. Delighted to be working with the Superstar #Thalaivar
With a reply tweet, director Karthik Subbaraj welcomed Nawazuddin Siddiqui to Tamil cinema. While Vijay Sethupathi is said to be playing the antagonist, there is still no lead about the nature of Nawazuddin’s character. It will be really exciting to see three incredibly talented actors like Rajinikanth, Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazzduin together on screen.
This yet-to-be titled movie’s technical crew includes National award winning cinematographer Tirru, composer Anirudh Ravichander and action choreographer Peter Hein. Title and first look are expected to be unveiled very soon.
