Close sources believe that the talks between Khusbu and the filmmakers are positive and she will soon sign the dotted lines.
Rajnikanth has started prep for his next film titled Thalaivar 168 for now with director Siruthai Shiva. Sun Pictures had announced last month on social media that they are bankrolling the project. It is supposed to be a rural entertainer.
According to reports, actress Khushbu Sundar is in talks for playing the female lead in the Rajnikanth starrer. She started her career in the film industry as a child artist. Khushbu will appear in full-fledged film role after a gap of few years. The actress has appeared in cameo roles under their home banner Avni Cinemas for the past few years.
Close sources believe that the talks between Khusbu and the filmmakers are positive and she will soon sign the dotted lines. If she joins the Siruthai Shiva directorial, it will lead to a grand reunion between Khusbu and superstar Rajnikanth who acted together in several 90’s films.
Their successful pairing worked wonders in films like Naatukoru Nallavan, Dharmathin Thalaivan, Annamalai, Mannan and Pandiyan.
The film, Thalaiver 168 is currently in pre-production and will begin its shoot in the first week of December itself. December 18 was the previous date fixed by the makers to shoot the film. It has been pushed up by December 5.
Comedy actor Soori has been roped in to play an important role. Composer, D Imman will be scoring the soundtrack for the movie.
