'Superstar' Rajinikanth's next big film, Jailer, officially kicked off its shooting on Monday, August 22, under Nelson Dilipkumar's direction with blockbuster production banner Sun Pictures dropping the grand announcement on social media. Touted to be a mass action entertainer, the upcoming film is the first occasion Rajinikanth and Nelson are joining hands, and will also feature music by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander. Taking to Twitter, Sun Pictures unveiled a special poster of Rajinikanth along with the caption: "#Jailer begins his action Today!" Check out Sun Pictures' grand announcement for 'Superstar' Rajinikanth's Jailer below:

Jailer marks the fourth time Rajinikanth and Sun Pictures are collaborating together after their previous box office blockbusters Enthiran (2010), Petta (2019), and Annaatthe (2021). The film was announced back in February this year when the reputed production-distribution house released a special video featuring Rajinikanth, Nelson, and Anirudh together. Jailer has been one of the most discussed Tamil films in recent times and fans now await Sun Pictures to drop a glimpse from the shooting spot. 

As of now, Rajinikanth's Jailer has Nelson and Anirudh as the only names officially to be attached to the film, with the rest of the cast and the crew yet to be announced. Earlier this month, actress Ramya Krishnan confirmed to popular Bollywood media portal Pinkvilla that she too is a part of the film and will be seen in a crucial role. The news of Ramya Krishnan's inclusion in Jailer instantly left fans everywhere elated as it will see her alongside Rajinikanth once again after their Padayappa in 1999, which saw them deliver electrifying performances. 

Rajinikanth will want to hit the bullseye this time after Annaatthe last year, which received mixed reviews, despite turning out to be a massive box office success. Likewise, director Nelson Dilipkumar too will be looking to come out all guns blazing with his latest directorial after his Beast with 'Thalapathy' Vijay didn't receive a favorable critical response from fans and critics, although it was ringing the cash register at the box office.
