Actresses Anushka Shetty and Sonakshi Sinha are slated to play the female leads in the movie, to be directed by K S Ravikumar.
Double Oscar-awardee A R Rahman is the music composer. News of the superstar's latest venture comes ahead of the release of his much-awaited period film 'Kochadaiiyan' on May 9, for which the story and screenplay were done by Ravikumar.
Interestingly, the name of Rajinikanth's grandson (son of his daughter Aishwarya and actor Dhanush) is Lingaa.
Ravikumar has already delivered superhit films with Rajinikanth as the hero in movies like 'Muthu' (1995) and 'Padayappa' (1999).
