Less than 10 days back, a groundbreaking announcement came in the form of 'Superstar' Rajinikanth joining hands with Karthik Subbaraj for a film under the Sun Pictures banner.

It must be noted this will be Rajinikanth’s 164th film in his illustrious career and marks the first time he is working under the Sun Pictures banner after their massive blockbuster, Enthiran, in 2010.

Meanwhile, an official announcement has now come out on the composer of the Rajinikanth-Karthik Subbaraj project and it is none other than Anirudh Ravichander.

Anirudh Ravichander took to his Twitter space to express his delight over landing the project saying he is elated to score music for his uncle’s film and expressed joy on joining with one of his favorite directors.

It must be noted this is a huge step forward for Anirudh Ravichander as he has now worked with three-fourths of the top stars in the Tamil film industry.

As known already, the 'Rockstar' composer has scored for two blockbuster 'Thala' Ajith films namely Vedalam and Vivegam.

His songs and score in 2014’s biggest blockbuster, 'Thalapathy' Vijay’s Kaththi still remains a top-ranking album among the star’s fans.

Anirudh has also scored for Suriya in Thaanaa Serndha Koottam released earlier this year.

The Rajinikanth-Karthik Subbaraj film will no doubt be the icing on the cake in Anirudh’s career.

It must be noted Rajinikanth already has two big released lined up next starting with the action gangster drama, Kaala, hitting screens on April 27. 

The highly-anticipated sci-fi action thriller, 2.0, directed by Shankar under the Lyca Productions banner is in its post-production stages at present and is being prepped for a release towards the middle of this year.
