Actor Rajinikanth is currently busy for his upcoming movie Darbar shooting with AR Murugadoss. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, the 68-year-old star is most likely to team up with director H Vinoth or veteran filmmaker KS Ravikumar for his next. If it is believed to be true, Rajinikanth’s possible collaboration with Vinoth or Ravikumar has been making the rounds for the last few days. Vinoth had pitched a one-liner to Rajinikanth even before commencing work on this project. “Rajinikanth sir can’t commit to two films at a time now. He heard Vinoth’s story and really liked it. However, he hasn’t given his nod yet,” a source told Hindustan Times.
On the other hand, Ravikumar has worked with Rajinikanth in blockbusters such as Muthu and Padayappa. However, his last outing Lingaa with the superstar turned out to be a disaster. In order to make up for that failure, Ravikumar is keen on joining hands with Rajinikanth.
One of the projects is most likely to be announced later this year. In the meantime, the actor has currently shifted all his focus on Darbar, which sees him play a cop after 25 years. The film also stars Nayanthara as the leading lady. This will be her third collaboration with Rajinikanth after Chandramukhi and Kuselan. The makers are yet to reveal the rest of the cast. Anirudh Ravichander has been confirmed to compose music. While Santosh Sivan will crank the camera, Sreekar Prasad will take care of editing.
