Superstar Rajinikanth’s next movie announcement is out and it will be director Siva of Siruthai, Viswasam fame who will be wielding the megaphone for Thalaivar’s 168th movie.
The movie will be bankrolled by Sun Pictures who is teaming up with Rajinikanth after the blockbuster Petta.
Rajini’s Petta, which released for Pongal, this year had clashed with Ajith’s Viswasam which was directed by Siva. There were few incidents of clashes between the fans of both the stars. However, this clash of titans at the box office could be considered a tie as both movies turned out to be huge revenue grossers ending up as blockbusters.
Rajini possibly teaming up with Siva for a village subject has been doing the rounds and this has been confirmed now by the production house Sun Pictures.

The other cast and crew are yet to be announced. Wishes have started pouring in for the team from inside and outside the industry with hopes of another blockbuster on the high.
Rajinikanth’s current project Darbar directed by AR Murugadoss is expected to hit the theatres for Pongal next year.
