Following the colossal success of Jailer, at a juncture where fans and film aficionados are all perking up the senses for the next outing from Rajinikanth, Lyca Productions on Sunday came up with the first batches of updates regarding Thalaivar 170. The initial set of updates for the upcoming film has been announced. Subaskaran will produce the film, with TJ Gnanavel as the director and Anirudh Ravichander as the music composer. The production house had previously announced this information earlier this year. However, another set of updates is still pending and is expected to be disclosed tomorrow.
It is to be noted that this is the first time Gnanavel will be directing Rajinikanth. The director last helmed the hard-hitting Suriya-starrer courtroom drama Jai Bhim.
On the other hand, Thalaivar 170 will mark Anirudh Ravichander's fourth collaboration with a Rajinikanth starrer. The musician had earlier played keys for Petta, Darbar, and Jailer.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth next release will be Lal Salaam, directed by his daughter, Aishwarya Rajinikanth, on which the veteran essays an extended cameo role. Furthermore, the actor will be joining forces with Lokesh Kanagaraj for Thalaivar 171, which is also backed by Lyca Productions.
