Nelson will be looking to come out firing on all cylinders with Jailer after his Beast with 'Thalapathy' Vijay received mixed reviews despite turning out to be a phenomenal box office success. Likewise, Rajinikanth too will aim for the bullseye with the film after his Annaatthe didn't hit the high note even though it was a commercial hit. The actor's character is named Muthuvel Pandian in the film after Sun Pictures released a special glimpse introducing him to the audiences. The film is also the second time Jackie Shroff is collaborating with Rajinikanth after he voiced the Raja Mahendran character in 2014's Kochadaiyaan and is his seventh Tamil venture. Jailer also marks the fourth occasion Rajinikanth and the blockbuster production house are collaborating after films like Enthiran, Petta, and Annaatthe.
