Actor-producer-director Samuthirakani, the man with a multitude of talents in Kollywood, is pretty excited about his next project wherein he gets to rub shoulders with the man he admires most – superstar Rajinikanth.
Yes, Samuthirakani has been roped in by director Pa. Ranjith to play a significant role in his upcoming film which hasn’t been titled as yet and goes to floors this Sunday (28th May). Rajii’s son-in-law and national award-winning actor Dhanush produces the film under his banner ‘Wunderbar Films’.
As reported earlier, Santhosh Narayanan gets to score his second Rajini-starrer with this film after last year’s colossal hit film Kabali which was the first film to bring Rajini and Ranjith together. As Ranjith had already confirmed, the proposed film won’t be a sequel to Kabali but would have a very different script. The film’s photo-shoot was held last week in Chennai.
Bollywood’s Huma Qureshi is all set to make her debut in Tamil films as heroine by pairing up opposite Rajini in this untitled film. It is now reported that Samuthirakani has joined the film’s cast. On his part, Samuthirakani has expressed his ‘delight’ at the opportunity to share screen-space with Rajini.
