Meena and Kushboo join the cast of Thalaivar 168
As officially announced recently, superstar Rajinikanth’s next film, tentatively titled as ‘Thalaivar 168’, will be directed by Siva. Sun Pictures is producing the film. For the last few days, the makers have been revealing details about the cast members. Keerthy Suresh, Soori and Prakash Raj have already been confirmed.
Veteran actresses Kushboo Sundar and Meena are the latest to join the team. While there were reports suggesting that both the actors were in talks, it was believed that only either of them will be part of the film eventually. But it has now come as a big surprise that both Meena and Kushboo are acting in the film.
Among the two, Kushboo has not been very active in Tamil cinema of late. Except for a few guest appearances in her home production films, it has been a while since she has appeared in full-fledged roles. She has previously starred alongside Rajinikanth in films like ‘Annamalai’, ‘Mannan’ and ‘Pandiyan’. Meena, on the other hand, has worked with the superstar both as a child artist and as his pair.
‘Thalaivar 168’ is said to be a rural-based mass entertainer. With Meena, Kushboo and Keerthy Suresh in the film, it is not yet known who plays Rajinikanth’s pair in the film.
