Khushbu, an actor-politician now, had paired opposite Rajinikanth in the blockbuster Annamalai, besides Pandian and Mannan in the past.
Rajinikanth’s next film is tentatively titled Thalaivar 168, suggesting it was his 168th flick. He is addressed as ‘Thalaivar’ (Leader) by his fans.
The film has already set off a buzz as Rajinikanth has teamed up with director Siva for the first time. The cast is a star-studded one, with the others being Prakashraj, Keerthi Suresh, Meena and Soori among others.
Siva, known for his successful collaborations with top actor Ajith Kumar, had earlier directed the blockbuster hit of the year Viswasam, starring the latter.
