Announced to being made at a mammoth budget, filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj is at present helming the tentatively titled Thalaivar 165 with ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth under the Sun Pictures banner. 

This upcoming film featuring music by Anirudh Ravichander will carry on production at a college in Kolkata. The team will reportedly set up camp for nearly 30 days after which they are expected to head to the Himalayas to shoot few key sequences.

In the meantime, tight security has been enforced around the film’s sets barring fans and spectators from entering and shooting any photographs from the production, which has left a section of Rajinikanth’s ardent followers disappointed.

Thalaivar 165 also includes Vijay Sethupathi in a vital role and although it is unknown at this point if the ‘Makkal Selvan’ will join the ongoing schedule, some fans of the star will be left dejected knowing they will not be able to catch a glimpse of him in action with Rajinikanth.

Although very little is known about Thalaivar 165, reports state the team will conduct a schedule near the India-Pakistan border. There is already talk across social networking forums as to whether this film will see Rajinikanth taking on terrorists which has no doubt raised the curiosity to a great extent. 

Actress Megha Akash of the upcoming Enai Noki Paayum Thota is also reportedly cast in this Karthik Subbaraj film starring the ‘Superstar’ of Tamil cinema.
