More Details

Even as superstar Rajini’s fans across the globe are gearing themselves to celebrate their Thalaivar’s birthday on the auspicious day of 12-12-12 (a day which occurs only once in a century), news about Rajini’s next film has trickled in. A little bird tells us that after the release of Kochadaiyan, Rajini might choose to work with Maniratnam, who had made his Thalapathy almost 2 decades back.

As reported earlier, Rajini’s Sivaji (3-D version) is slated to hit the screens worldwide on the above-said date while his animated 3-D film Kochadaiyan release could be sometimes in summer 2013. As such, speculations as to whom would Rajini be working with for his next film have already started doing rounds. Names of directors such as Murugadoss and K.V. Anand are frequently referred to in this regard. Some even mentioned the name of Manirathnam.

Sources close to the Poes Garden residence of the superstar say on condition of anonymity that Rajini has almost finalized Maniratnam as the director of his film, after the two had a tête-à-tête at the star’s house recently during when the script of the to-be-made film was discussed threadbare

Mani had earlier made the super-hit film Thalapathy in 1991. One of the songs in the film, Raakkamma Kaiya Thattu….was voted among the best ever top-10 songs via an on-line poll some time back. One of the reasons for the super-success of the films was the music of Maestro Ilaiyaraaja. However, for his new film with Rajini in the lead, Mani is likely to tope in twin-Oscar winner A.R. Rahman as the music director.
