Thalaivar 165: The First Move In The Rajinikanth-Karthik Subbaraj Film

Tentatively being called Thalaivar 165, 'Superstar' Rajinikanth’s association with young acclaimed filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj for a film next has left everybody quite excited.
To be produced under the Sun Pictures banner with music by Anirudh Ravichander, the announcement of Thalaivar 165 came as a sweet yet big surprise to all, who were under the belief that Rajinikanth would quit cinema since his announcement on entry into politics.
Meanwhile, latest reports now state Karthik Subbaraj visited Rajinikanth’s Poes Garden residence at Chennai today. It is believed their meeting was primarily to discuss about the production plan for Thalaivar 165, which we expect could flag off sometime in the next few months.
As for their upcoming projects, Karthik Subbaraj’s silent horror thriller, Mercury, with Prabhudeva is gearing up for a release on April 13.

On the other hand, Rajinikanth's first big release of the year starts with Kaala, announced for a release on April 27.
The mammoth sci-fi action thriller, 2.0, under Shankar’s direction is another Rajinikanth project fans are waiting with breath to arrive in theatres, which is now reportedly being planned for Diwali this year.
