Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe delayed; Siva to start works on Suriya’s film
Shoot for superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ has been put on hold due to the pandemic situation. Though the makers had resumed shoot in December, they had to stop it immediately after some crew members were tested Covid positive. In the following week, Rajinikanth was also admitted in hospital due to some health issues. The makers have now been forced to stall shoot till the situation gets better.
Due to ‘Annatthe’ delay, director Siva has now decided to begin the pre-production works of his upcoming film with Suriya. Though this project was supposed to begin first, Siva opted to proceed with ‘Annatthe’ after Rajinikanth voluntarily gave him dates after being impressed with ‘Viswasam’.
The delay with ‘Annatthe’ means that Siva’s film with Suriya will be beginning much earlier than expected. KR Gnanavel Raja is producing the film, which is yet to be titled. Meanwhile, Suriya is set to start shooting for his next with director Pandiraj. He has also committed for ‘Vaadivaasal’ with director Vetrimaaran.
