Meanwhile, in a surprising turn of events, Rajinikanth had invited Viswasam director Siva to his residence at Poes Garden in Chennai earlier today (May 28). Reports started doing the rounds that the veteran actor had called on the hit filmmaker to appreciate him for his recent blockbuster with ‘Thala’ Ajith in the lead role released earlier this year.

That said, the interaction between the two had lasted for well over a hour and there is a possibility that director Siva could have narrated a story to Rajinikanth during their meeting.

To get further details surrounding the meeting, we here at Galatta had tried to get in touch with director Siva, who was unavailable for a comment. It must be noted that both of them had previously met well over a year back with talks since the time of Vedalam’s release that the two would come together for film.

As of now, it remains to be seen what Rajinikanth has planned for his next film while director Siva will be kickstarting his film with Suriya tentatively titled Suriya 39 under the Studio Green banner from July.
