Given that the handcuffs are made of watches, fans wondered if Suriya’s character Rolex will make an appearance. While the filmmakers are yet to announce anything as such, the film’s poster hints the film might have something to do with time and gold. The film’s pre-production is currently in progress and it will go on floors later this year.

About Thalaivar 171

This is Rajinikanth’s first film with Lokesh. The film is produced by Sun Pictures and was announced in September last year. Sivakarthikeyan is rumoured to play a key role in the film, but the rest of the cast and crew is yet to be announced. It’s expected that the film’s full team will be revealed on the day the title is announced. However, composer Anirudh Ravichander and stunt director duo Anbariv have been roped in already, according to the new poster.

Upcoming work

Rajinikanth was last seen in his daughter, Aishwarya’s directorial Lal Salaam earlier this year. He is currently shooting for Vettaiyan with director TJ Gnanavel. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Fahadh Faasil and Rana Daggubati. After the highly successful 2022 film Vikram with Kamal Haasan, Lokesh followed it up with the 2023 film Leo with Vijay. He recently made his acting debut with Shruti Haasan’s song Inimel. Apart from the film with Rajinikanth, Lokesh also has Kaithi 2 with Karthi lined up.
