The movie will be a gangster-thriller and go on floors in August 2019. Aiswarya Lekshmi will be seen playing a female lead. It will be shot entirely in United Kingdom.
Y Not Studios has collaborated with Reliance Entertainment for the project.
In his recent movie Petta, Karthik Subbaraj collaborated with megastar Rajnikanth. He said that he is proud to have directed Tamil actioner “Petta” as a die-hard superstar Rajinikanth fanboy.
“I grew up idolising Rajinikanth and I’ve always wanted to see him in a certain way. When I knew I was going to write for Rajini sir, I wanted to show him in the most stylish way and bring back his mannerisms and machismo,” Subbaraj told IANS.
“When I thought of writing for Rajini sir, I told myself it will be a really cool character with a very happy-go-lucky attitude. We took such a character and placed him in a strong story and I believe, as a combination, it has worked wonders. Rajini sir thoroughly enjoyed doing comedy and romance,” he added.
