No official confirmation about Kalyani joining the project has been made yet and an official statement is expected during the puja ceremony.
After 31 years Aravind Swamy will reunite with Rajinikanth with this movie while Vadivelu is going to work with the superstar after 14 years.
The director has been putting together a potent cast for the movie. The rest of the cast and crew details are also likely to be revealed during the puja ceremony in Chennai.
According to sources, Thalaivar 170 will be a pure commercial entertainment. The film is directed by Cibi Chakravarthy of Don fame while music will be composed by Anirudh. The film is bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
Rajinikanth is already shooting for Nelson Dilipkumar’s Jailer and Thalaivar 170 going on the floors now means the actor will be filming both simultaneously. This indicates that both the films may be released in 2023, a treat for Rajinikanth fans.
