Lyca Production and Superstar Rajinikanth will be collaborating for the third time after Kaala and 2.0. Rajinikanth was last seen in the role of a police officer in movies like Pandian, Kodi Parakuthu and Moondru Mugam and almost after two decades, he will be seen as a police officer on the screen.
Two Stars get together again
The film also features actress Nayanthara in an important role. On Monday, Rajinikanth’s publicist Riaz Ahmed confirmed Nayanthara’s casting on Twitter. He wrote: “The rumors being speculated about the cast of Thalaivar 167 is not authentic. As of now, only Nayanthara has been roped in the film. Kindly do not spread the news until you get an official press release about the entire confirmed cast.”
Nayanthara has previously worked with the superstar in films like Shivaji, Chandramukhi and Kuselan. On the other hand, not much is revealed in the poster other than his face. The first look also carried what seemed to be the Gateway of India in Mumbai, hinting that the story might be based in the western metropolis. However, Rajinikanth looks stylish as always in Darbar.
