Simran to star opposite Rajinikanth in Karthik Subbaraj’s next?
As we already know, the promising young filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj’s next is with superstar Rajinikanth. Sun Pictures is producing this movie which also has Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role. Latest buzz is that veteran actress Simran has been paired opposite Rajinikanth in this movie. Simran’s casting is yet to be officially confirmed but it will be huge if it turns out to be true.
Simran, unarguably one of the leading heroines of her time, has been taking up only performance-oriented roles of late. She has acted with almost all the leading stars of Tamil cinema including Kamal Haasan, Vijay, Ajith and Suriya. If Karthik Subbaraj manages to get Simran on board, this will be her first film with Thalaivar and their chemistry will be one to watch out for.
Pre-production works for this yet-to-be titled movie are currently progressing. The makers have planned to go on floors by June. The director and his team is currently busy with the process of finalizing the supporting cast and crew. Bobby Simha and ‘Mercury’ fame Sananth Reddy have reportedly been signed for the movie. They are said to be Rajinikanth’s two sons in the film. In the technical crew, Anirudh Ravichander will be handling the music director and Tirru will be cranking the camera.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth’s Kaala is gearing up to hit screens on June 7. The movie directed by Pa Ranjith has the superstar playing a Mumbai based don. Kaala is touted to be a gangster flick that talks about lives of the Tamil community in the slums of Dharavi. Nana Patekar, Huma Quereshi, Pankaj Tripathi and Samuthirakani are also part of the movie.
